Municipal officials in Cap d’Agde, the site of the biggest inernational nudist colony, put up signs warning “NUDITY OBLIGATORY” and hired special police to ensure people using the beach took off their clothes, Pointing out that extreme sunburn was the only exception, Mayor Gerard Paillou called the growing invasion of clothed vacationers “intolerable.” He said more and more beach users are “simply refusing to get undressed.” The seven members of the Cap’s beach patrol wear only white caps to identify themselves. One of them, identified by the newspaper Liberation only as Frederic, explained “Every time we get someone to take their swimsuits off we are happy and have the impression of playing an important part in the life of the community.”
