La Jenny Nude
Jenny, France - Officially
Recognised Nude Beach
La Jenny naturist resort is next
to one of the more remote nude
beaches on France's Atlantic coast.
In fact, it is possible to stroll
(or cycle) naked for miles along
the coastline in either direction!
The resort, covering 300 acres,
is set in pine woods and comprises
only houses and bungalows - no
tents or caravans are allowed.
The resort and expansive beaches
are situated 60km west of Bordeaux
and 7km northwest of Lège-Cap-Ferret.
JENNY NUDE BEACH REPORTS:
My wife and I first
visited La Jenny in the summer of
1997 at the urging of a naturist
pen pal. Each year, we set off to
walk the nude beach until we feel
the need to turn around because
our nudity seems out of place. Having
walked well over an hour in either
direction, we have yet to find that
border as it seems that you could
pretty much walk to Normandy without
offending the natives. -

The nude beach is
superb. Clean with fine golden sand.
The beach is backed by 50ft high
sand dunes. Most people cycle from
the resort leaving the bike at the
bottom of the dune and walk up the
boardwalk and down to the beach.
Might not be so good for the not
so agile. The Atlantic breakers
crash onto the beach and it is worth
taking note of the forecast on the
top of the dune. An area of the
beach is supervised by lifeguards
between 10am and 6pm. The ferocity
of the waves can make the conditions
difficult for non or weak swimmers.
For good swimmers, invest in a body
board for an unforgettable experience.
