Story 1: Seeing the sea

Story 1: Seeing the sea
Sunset in VillervilleTown of Villerville

The six beaches along the inDeauville territory
each have their own atmosphere.
Family, steep, sporty, scientific or Californian...
they all have their own identity. The colors and shapes of the beach umbrellas
as well as the cabins differ from one to the other,
renewing each day the decoration of the vacations.
Common point: the surveillance of bathing water is maximal.
In addition to the national surveillance conducted by the Regional Health Agency,
samples are taken every day from June to September.
