Le Touquet Beach Is Open
The beach of Le Touquet-Paris-Plages-de-Calais has just been re-opened under strict conditions.
The beach is accessible to all from 9am to 7pm, but under very strict conditions so that physical distances are respected.
As the Pas-de-Calais department is still in the red zone, these measures are essential to limit the spread of the virus.
Thus, the beach of Le Touquet-Paris-Plage is divided into three distinct parts:
The Northern part, which remains closed to the public (Baie de Canche Nature Park, dunes, dune paths and Thierry Sabine pine forest forbidden). The Centre part open to the promenade only: (from the Saint Jean II car park to the descent of the Bertrand Lambert nautical base); No staying in one position or putting towels down, no swimming, no beach games, no groups of more than 10 people.
The southern part is open to individual sports (from the descent from the Bertrand Lambert base to Stella): running, kite surfing, windsurfing, paddle, longe-côte; Here too, no static position, no swimming or grouping.
Dogs, even on a leash, are forbidden on the beach.
The accesses/exits to the beach will be by differentiated and one-way flows.
The beach will be monitored to ensure compliance with government and municipal measures: in addition to video surveillance. Throughout the beach, prevention officers will be present every day between 9am and 7pm, with reinforcements for public holidays and weekends.
The role of these beach ambassadors will be to ensure compliance with the rules.
They will be identifiable by their T-shirt bearing the logos of the communes of Le Touquet, Cucq, Merlimont and Camiers (which provide the joint beach surveillance service).
They will be in permanent contact with the Centre Rescue Station where two agents will also be in charge of beach surveillance.
This system will be reinforced by ASVP patrols on the seawall and in connection with the National Police services.
