The first tourists have already arrived in Les Sables-d’Olonne. Some, accompanied by their faithful furry companions. However, they will not be able to walk around during their stay in the seaside town.

No dogs on the Grande Plage

Since 1er April until September 30, access to Grande Plage, Tanchet and Paracou beaches and the Dombret basin are forbidden to dogswhether tourists or locals, on a leash or not.

The only animals exempt from this restriction are social support dogs (for the visually impaired) or security companies.

“We have chosen these dates because they correspond to the greater number of people in Les Sables-d’Olonne, at the start of the Easter holidays”

Alexandre Mézière, elected delegate for the forest plan, the coast and the marshes.

However, some areas remain accessible to pets, as long as they remain tethered.

So they can walk around Sauveterre beach and Granges beach the rest of the year.

“They are more suitable for pets.”

For the safety of walkers

These restrictions are intended primarily to act at the level sanitary. Dog droppings, whether in sand or water, promote the development of bacteria as enterococcus and E. Parcel which can be harmful to human health and biodiversity.

It is for this reason that animals can no longer swim in the sea.

The protection of fauna and flora is also one of the reasons that the City puts forward to justify its restrictions.

She evokes the danger that they can represent for small mammalsor birds and their eggsas well as for dunes sandblasted.

Finally, these rules were also set up to protect swimmers and walkers possible jostling or biting, and to preserve their tranquility “against barking or even running between towels”, specifies the City.

€35 fine

In the event of an infraction, dog owners expose themselves to a fine of 35 €. But since these restrictions were put in place, the City found no misconduct.

According to the latter, users respect the rules rather well given the density of the population on the beaches. The City did not have to intervene on serious problems or incidents between users, ”recalls the town hall.

“There may be some in April who go to the beach in good faith forgetting that it is forbidden. In this case, we recall the rules, we have an educational role“, completes Alexandre Mézière.

New facilities

If they cannot access the beaches, the dogs and their owners can take advantage of the sand forestalways keeping them on a leash.

“It’s ideal for them, even better than the beach because there is shade and they benefit from more freshness”.

Alexandre Meziere

The coastal delegate also intends to develop places dedicated to these pets in Les Sables-d’Olonne.

“We have several identified sites to install dog parks“, he announces.
