06 – Alpes Maritimes
Coco Beach – Nice
Coco Beach is one of the lesser known beaches in Nice. Here, we do not have a typical stone beach, but instead we find large rocks landscaped with paths in the rock and zones with ladders for getting into the water, as if it were a giant swimming pool. There are also areas to lay out for a tan. Coco Beach is lovely and from here you’ll have a great view of the harbor of Nice. We are not far from the Cap de Nice. A coastal path makes for a nice walk. Note that during the summer, a first-aid station is available on this beach and there is a lifeguard around. For those looking for tranquility, this is the ideal place! Be prudent, nevertheless, because swimming is dangerous.
Access :There are no parking lots here. The usuals park along the road Jean Lorrain or take the bus – lines 30 or T32, get off at Theodore de Banville/Lorrain.
To get to this beach from Nice’s harbor, take boulevard Carnot then take avenue Jean Lorrain on the right that leads right to the beach.
Jetée du Port – Nice
Accès : Close to the lighthouse, in the blocks, nudism.
Place for hooking up. Nice during the day but can be more risky at night.
Rochers du Cap of Nice
Accès : Take the path of the sea border after Coco Beach restaurant and finally circumvent the cape.
Saint-Laurent d’Eze Beach
St Laurent Beach in Eze is one of the least known gay beach in town. It is located between the Pointe de Cabuel and Cap Mala in the St Laurent Bay. This beach has an idyllic setting. After a promenade in the shady woods with a little stream, we arrive in this beautiful bay where the waves splash agains the rocks and stones. The beach is narrow and we find mostly stones. On the seaboard are a few sand banks. We find other little creeks as we continue along the path on the right, but they are mostly visited by nudists.
Access : To get to the beach coming from Eze, follow directions for Monaco from the M6098. After the tunnel continue 600 meters. There is a parking lot on the right with a snack truck on the curve. An entrance to the path can be found in the curve with stairs that lead to the beach (about 10 minutes by foot). Attention, this beach is often confused with the nudists beach of Pissarelles that is 200 meters further.
Plage de la Batterie – Cannes
Since 2009 nudism has been forbidden in Cannes. Nevertheless, Batterie Beach is still reserved for nudists. It is therefore the only beach in Cannes where we can practice nudism. Batterie consists of three distinct beaches. The first is at the exit of the tunnel and is the biggest (it may seem small since it is a narrow 20 meters wide). It is made up of sand and stones and offers a bay with a view of the Bay of Juan les Pins. This beach is not the calmest of the three. Continuing to the left (stairs) and following the dirt path, we arrive just in front of a private property in two little creeks with fine sand. These creeks are very narrow and charming. Only the third has stairs. We visited these beaches in the winter (December). We notices there were many travelers. At first sight, as soon as the sun comes out people flock to the beaches. Avoid coming after nightfall.
Access : These beaches are located on the highway between Gulf Juan and Cannes (Avenue Marechal Juin). On the long straight road, just after a Total station on the right, we find an access (careful, we found a parking lot but it was no longer accessible – you have to park along the road which is difficult). Next to a blue gate there are stairs that go down to a tunnel that passes under the road. On the right side of the tunnel are stairs that lead to the first beach.
Ile Sainte-Marguerite – Cannes
Access: on a part of rocks, east coast face to Saint-Honorat Island. To reach the island, take shuttle service from Cannes. Several maritime transports companies are implanted on the island platforms, at the extremity of Laubeuf parking.
After a few minutes on a boat departing from Cannes, Saint-Marguerite Island offers you a wonderful setting where nature, culture, and serenity reign.
07 – Ardeche
Access: once arrived in Labeaume, turn on your right in direction of Récatadou, take the small way towards the river, then on your right following the rocks, you’ll find the naturist and gay side.
08 – Ardennes
Bairon Lake – Le Chesne
In the middle of Ardennes is located the Bairon lake with an area of 120 hectares and is constituted of two ponds separated by a seawall. The place proposes several activities such as kayak, sail, and swim.
Access: close to Ardennes canal. From Sedan, take D977 until Le Chesne by Chemery. Follow D312 or D212 alongside the lake.
Vieilles Forges Lake – Revin
Access: take the direction of Musée de la fôret, between Charleville and Revin. Before arriving to the lake, close to the parking on your right.
10 – Aube
Seawall of Lac d’Orient
Access: the lake is accessible by the A5 highway coming from the towns of Troyes (Paris) and Chaumont (Lyon), but also from the former 19 national road, actually 619 departmental road. The closest airport is Troyes-Barberey.
11 – Aude
Pissevaches beach – les cabanes de Fleury
Access: walk alongside the sea for 20 minutes, halfway between les Cabanes and Saint-Pierre-sur-Mer, after the nudist camping. Pissevaches beach is a large gay beach made of fine sand. There is a nudist side, closer to Oustalet domain where you can find a center with horses, a little farm, and several hiking ways.
13 – Bouches du Rhône
Goudes Beach – Marseille
Goudes Beach in Marseille is located north of the fishing harbor, Goudes, just before arriving at Cap Croisette (that the people of Marseille call the “end of the world”). This neighborhood has kept a lot with its former cabanas that have been transformed into homes. The little sand beach is located at the entrance of the village on the right. We find a few parking places here. Stairs lead to the gay beach. The view of the village is nice.
Note that before this beach are several calanques: Trous, Blanche, Escalette. We did not reference these since swimming space seems very difficult to use.
Mont-Rose gay beach – Marseille
Access: follow the avenue of la Madrague de Montredon, this gay beach is below. One of the oldest gay beaches of France. And an emblematic place for gays from Marseille each summer. A little forest is highly frequented by men.
Callelongue Beach – Marseille
Calanque de Marseilleveyre is the first large calanque coming from the Baie des Singes or Callelongue. It has a large sand and gravel beach. There is also a restaurant here. Note that this calanque does not have running water, so that means no toilets and there is no electricity. The environment is wild and we find clear water that entices us to swim. Across we find the Jarre and Riou islands.
Access : This calanque is only accessible by foot. The easiest way to get here is from the Calanque de Callelongue and follow the GR98 (hiking trail) that leads along the sea. It will take about 45 minutes.
