A bay of soft golden sand lapped by the warm Mediterranean, Le Sérignan Plage is the epitome of the easygoing European beach – just a bit more easygoing on the wardrobe. Popular with families from across Europe and beyond, it has a snack bar on the sands and lifeguards in season to make for a stress-free day au naturel. Like so many of the best French nude beaches, this one has a naturist resort, Sérignan Plage Nature, which offers camping pitches and holiday cottages for hire. Every morning, a stunning water park alongside the campsite is open for luxurious nude bathing in a series of pools and spas, before turning clothes-only in the afternoons.
