The 2024 seaside season is imminently set to start, and with that the Prince’s Government is once again affirming its commitment to guaranteeing the quality and safety of the Principality’s beaches.

To create an optimal environment for everyone, levelling work was carried out on Larvotto beach, wherein the Department of Maritime Affairs will install an anti-jellyfish net from June 1 to ensure the safety of swimmers.

Meanwhile, in order to ensure the health quality of bathing water, the Environmental Department carries out weekly samples and analyses, the results of which are displayed each week at the Larvotto police station, and on each site so that the information is easily accessible to all beachgoers. The Monegasque Sanitation Company will continue to work from 08:00 until 18:00, every day, to guarantee the cleanliness and hygiene of beaches, on land and at sea.

Like every year, the ‘Monaco Zero Butts’ operation, led by the Monaco Town Hall, the Monegasque Sanitation Company and the Tourism and Convention Department will raise awareness among residents and tourists about environmental pollution, particularly by cigarette butts.

In the spirit of awareness and education, the Environmental Department is pleased to present the ‘Guide to responsible and safe swimming in the Principality’. This document aims to promote good swimming practices, thus ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

“We invite residents and visitors to come and enjoy the beaches and facilities of the Principality, while respecting safety and cleanliness instructions. Summer 2024 is shaping up to be an exceptional season, where relaxation and environmental responsibility meet for the pleasure of all,” reads the government press release.
