La Jenny Beach

La Jenny Beach - France
© sylv1rob1

This remote and wild stretch of sand can be found between Le Porge and Cap Ferret on France’s Atlantic coast. There are mile upon mile of beach in both directions with a uniform backing of high dunes. What differentiates the sand to the north and south is the latter is officially clothing optional whilst the former is for “textiles”.

Unless you are staying at the La Jenny naturist holiday park it takes a little determination to get here. Somewhat off the beaten track you will have to navigate the narrow lanes through pine forests before the coast suddenly appears ahead. It takes about an hour to reach the beach from Bordeaux. Whichever way you get here you will still need to traverse the high sand dune to get to the beach.

Being on the Atlantic coast means the beach is often more suited to surfing than swimming. If you do decide to throw yourself into the slightly tepid waters there are lifeguards here to keep an eye on you. Beyond that there is nothing in the way of facilities for day visitors.
