Hossegor - les Culs Nus

The shore of the Landes region is an almost infinite beach backed by pine forests. Hossegor is a holiday resort famous among surfers, who loves its waves, but also among nudists, who love this huge nude beach, hundreds of meters wide and kilometers long. Plenty of people, but lots of space for everybody.

How to get there

From the motorway A63 take exit 8 towards Capbreton/Hossegor. Cross Capbreton and get into Hossegor crossing the channel, leaving the lake "Lac d'Hossegor" on your right until you get onto Boulevard Front de Mer direction north. This is the road that runs between the dunes and the houses.
You can identify the access to the naturist beach because it is the only point that allows perpendicular parking on your right. There is a wooden path through the dunes that leds into the beach after 100m.

The beach

This is only a long sandy beach that runs straight for kilometers all along the shore of Landes, only interrupted by a few rivers. It has an uniform width of approximately 100m between the seashore and the dunes. Behind them, inmense pinetree forests created centuries ago to stop dune movement, or camping or holiday resorts.
The beach is open to the Atlantic Ocean, and waves are highly appreciated by surfers, which have here some of the best spots in Europe. Along the beach there are several surf schools.
The naturist section (or "les cul nus") of Hossegor beach is not different from the rest of the area, it is not even in the most isolate area. On the contrary, it is right in front of the northernmost houses of Hossegor.
During summer there can be lots of people, but plenty of space for everybody.


Facilities

There is a beach bar next to the beach entrance and lifeguards during summer season.

Nudism

It is an official naturist beach, which means that most people here is naked. The exception are surfers, who like the wave that forms on this spot. I supose there are signs on the ends of the nudist section, since it continues into textile areas without any natural boundary. Occasionally textiles arrive walking along the shore.
It may be a bit surprising to find a nude beach just besides a road and an inhabited area, but the dunes provide enough privacy.

I have dedicated most of my free time in the last years to discover the world, and beaches offer some of the most stunning landscapes on Earth. The next step was to enjoy them as naturally as possible, which obviously mean without clothes. Now I think it is time for me to share this liberating experience and try to help others to discover it.
