Quality & safety

The quality of the bathing water at Deauville beach is monitored by the Coeur Côte Fleurie community of communes, which is responsible for preserving the coastal ecosystem. It was among one of the first French public authorities to embark on a certification process for bathing water, an initiative which was rewarded in 2010 by obtaining certification (by the Véritas office) for its management system and renewed since. In summer, you will find all the useful information on water quality at the First Aid station located on Les Planches. To find out more, visit the Coeur Côte Fleurie Community site.
