updated as it was written in 2002 and so is now
some seven years old but most observations
are probably still pertinent.
An entertaining read, well written with a humourous
side that keeps you smiling.

This book is a "How-To" manual for navigating only the sexual features of Cap d'Agde, and ignores the primary "Family-oriented" society that is Cap d'Agde. Were he describing New York City, Velton would emphasize the old 42nd Street & Times Square sex business or describe Boston through the "red light district". Very misleading. If you go to Cap d'Agde during the prime season for sex on the beach (too much of the authors' text), you will be very disappointed. European grandparents, parents, children, and grandchildren visit Cap d'Agde for the family-oriented, social nudity in a beach community. Not only are the police there to protect that, and be lifeguards, they also intervene tactfully with people who wander onto the nude beach, in clothing, to gawk. Nudite obligatoire on the beach. You will find yourself stepping over numerous sand castles, around ping pong sized balls flying through the air, and children/babies running endlessly to and from the water. There is a sexual tone to the nightlife of Cap d'Agde. Europeans are more balanced about the subject than Americans. However, it is just that...nightlife. Like after-hours television, it is available to adults who chose it, not a dawn-to-dawn experience.
Avoid this book. Go to Cap d'Agde and see for yourself.
