Description

A vast expanse of fine sand, or time-worn rocky creek, every beach is unique, bordered by a palm-fringed promenade or with a cliif top path. You’ll love the moment when the sun plunges into the waves and the turquoise and emerald sea giving the Mediterranean its unique blue palette. Contemplative, sometimes feeling on top of the world of the Gulf of Fréjus, or overflowing with energy on the water – let yourself go…

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.
