The ‘ Pavillon Bleu’ or Blue flag is a certification awarded to beaches and marinas which ensures its high quality environmental standard. Today this has become a real European reference.
The three sites that make up the area of MEDOC OCEAN obtained this award again in 2012 following 18 consecutive years of this precious recommendation.
Your security, a priority for MEDOC OCEAN
Beach surveillance in MEDOC OCEAN includes 6 first aid/life guard stations (4 in Lacanau, 1 in Carcans and 1 Hourtin) for 9 supervised swimming zones along our 50km of ocean beaches. There are also 5 lifeguard stations on Lake Carcans-Hourtin and 2 lifeguard stations on Lake Lacanau.
Thanks to the help of the CRS (the security section of the National French police force) and the Civil Aquatic Lifesavers, this surveillance operates from the first weekends of May.
