Ten recommendations for bathers and boaters for a sustainable summer.

We wish to raise awareness among the boaters and the ones using the beach to preserve and respect the underwater environment as well as its biodiversity :

  • Do not throw any waste on the beach nor into the water. Use bins and containers at your disposal in the harbours and at the beach.
  • Privilege waste management wherever you are, on ground or at sea.
  • Respect the existing fishing regulation, particularly the minimum size of the catch as well as the protected species like the grouper.
  • Do not remove sea urchins during seasons when it is forbidden.
  • The Larvotto area is an underwater reserve, delimited and regulated in order to preserve the plants and animals.
  • Respect the existing flora and fauna. Do not feed the fish and do not remove any rocks or fixed objects.
  • Use rather solvable sun block creams instead of sun oils as they build a film on the water surface reducing the quantity of light which is essential for life in water.
  • Boaters, check your motor regularly and privilege a four-stroke engine which consumes and discharges less.
  • Privilege less harmful cleaning products for the maintenance of your boat and reduce your water consumption.
  • Privilege an anchorage in a sandy area. Raise the anchor slowly.
