Safety first this summer on Monaco’s beaches

With beach season underway, the Monaco Government has put together a ‘Guide to responsible and safe swimming in the Principality’ in a bid to promote safe swimming practices and avoid unnecessary accidents.  

Once this bout of gloomy weather clears, the days of fun in the sun will soon be upon us. Monaco’s Larvotto Beach is ready for summer following its annual tidy-up operation and beachgoers are already flocking to the sands and sea on a daily basis with friends and family members. 

As evidenced by the publishing of a new ‘Guide to responsible and safe swimming in the Principality’, the government of Monaco is keen to remind sun worshippers and bathers that the beaches are there for the enjoyment of all and should be respected. Click here to see the guide. 

The Société Monégasque d’Assainissement will be doing its part to ensure that the beaches are kept clean and free from rubbish with daily visits between 8am and 6pm. 

A weekly sample of the water will be taken over the coming months to ensure public safety and the Department of Maritime Affairs will be installing an anti-jellyfish net on 1st June to protect swimmers in the sea. 

An awareness campaign called Monaco Zéro Mégots is already up and running. The goal of this Mairie de Monaco-led project is to encourage smokers to use designated bins for the disposal of their cigarette butts and a number of different sites around the Principality are handing out portable pocket ashtrays in a bid to keep the streets and sea clean.
