Title: Île du Levant, has anyone been?
Post by: swede on August 24, 2019, 11:49:26 am
So I've heard that Île du Levant is a full naturist island with a nude village. Does anyone know anything about this place? Has anyone been? Is there accommodation on the actual island?

A few days ago I discovered it while on the interwebs. I did some reading. It seems to me like 90% of it is taken up by the French military, and the remaining 10% is the nude village. The village only has like 200 people in it; so it's very small. The economy seems to be mostly based on tourism. There are several hotels on the island, though there is no running water and the accommodations seem pretty sparse.

Nudity is forbidden in the military zone (obviously), the port, and the public buildings (church, post office, town hall); everything else is clothing-optional except for the beach where nudity is mandatory.

I've never been, it's across an ocean from me. I did look it up and saw that I could get a roundtrip ticket for less than $800; so I could easily finance a trip with my summer earnings; if I could get my parents off my back. :laugh:

hotels seemed very expensive. Are you sure about the no running water? Won't your parents let you go?

is there camping sites?  I haven't heard of it... but I much prefer to camp if I am on a naturist holiday, but that is just me!

I did read the fact about their being no running water several times, I could be wrong but I'm not making it up. I think I found a hotel for 70 Euros ($79) per night; most of the hotels near me are over 100 euros/dollars; so this doesn't seem outrageous.

Clearly, your parents aren't like mine.  :smiley:

Did some poking around and hotels seem fairly reasonable for how gorgeous this place looks. Definitely adding this one to the bucket list. Thanks for sharing!
