Surveillance

Surveillance 7/7, 9 am to 7 pm
First flag raised, first fog horn sounded: we’re off for 15 weeks until Sunday 20 September.
Nevertheless, openings (and closures) will be done gradually. Consequently, 7 stations – Sablettes, République and Capitole on Fréjus-beach; PC-plage and Port-Fréjus in the nature centre sector; Galiote and Esclamandes on  the Aygulf beaches – are open for the time being. They are operational 7/7, from 9 am to 7 pm, and will be joined by the Argens station on 13 June. They will remain in this configuration until 31 August, then in smaller numbers, decreasing thereafter until 20 September.
