Recently the American web site The Richest published the list of the 10 best nude beaches in the world.
The ranking took into consideration online reviews, location, amenities, privacy, sand quality, etc
In this list France not only shares with Spain (with the Canary and Baleares islands) the highest number of best naked beaches, each country counts 3 entries (Greece has 2, US and Croatia 1 each) but also the top place belongs to Port-Leucate naked beach situated in the department of Aude, halfway between the towns of Narbonne and Perpignan in the south west of France, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
This nudist resort comprises 7 independent villages spread over an area of 45 000 m2 and includes the more then 1km long pristine beach – labeled Pavilion Bleu* – between the Grau de Leucate and the actual port of Leucate.
The other 2 French nude beaches the make the list are at number 10: Les Grottes Plage located on the island of Levant, off the coast of the Riviera, near Toulon and at number 8: the Euronat beach situated on the Atlantic coast, north west of Bordeaux, one of the biggest nude beaches in the world stretching over 150km.
*Pavilion Bleu is a label created in 1985 and that guaranties a good environmental quality
