What is it?Logo-Pavillon-Bleu

It was created in 1985 by Teragir which is an assiociation for sustainable development and ecology. Nowadays it is delivered in 47 countries all over the world.

How to get it?

To receive this label for a beach means respecting all the requirements which must be applied. Attention should be given to specific elements like facilities and equipments, safety and bathing water quality. Their main goal  is to reduce the devastating human impact of excessive tourism.

Concerning facilities it means equipment for selective sorting (particularly waste bins) but also sanitary block near to the beach. During high season the city has to organize sustainable development awareness activities for the tourists.

Concerning marina and harbours labelling, it is about protection of marine environment. Indeed access to careening areas (without discharge into the marine environment) helps to reduce water pollution.saint-pair-sur-mer-et-coudeville-sur-mer-nouveaux-pavillons-bleus_2
