The 'No Smoking' Beach

One of Menton's beaches - Plage Fossan - has been made into a 'No Smoking' beach this summer. They even provide an ashtray to use before you enter. According to Nice-Matin it has proved unpopular. This is also a 'No Dog' beach but Menton does have three beaches that allow dogs - woof woof!


Une des plages de Menton - la  Plage du Fossan - a été décrétée plage «Sans Tabac»  cet été. On fournit même un cendrier à utiliser avant d'entrer. Selon Nice-Matin, elle s'est avérée impopulaire. Cette plage est aussi «Interdite aux Chiens» mais  Menton propose trois plages qui acceptent les chiens - ouaf ouaf!


  1. As an ex smoker,(The worse kind!)how wonderful. Keep it up Menton!

  2. No, no, no,no, no, no...Kind of unsettling at times.

  3. I think this is progress. At least people have a choice. They can go to the smoking beach or the non-smoking beach, right?

  4. I just got back from Menton and was at that same beach. I did see people smoking.
    In the evening lots of people brought there dogs. One person, their dog, a rather large one, maybe a German Shepard, had an "accident" on the beach and the woman didn't curb it. It was pretty disgusting.

  5. Too bad there have to be so many rules . .

  6. Great idea...I hate being outside, at the beach, enjoying the fresh air and having smoke waft across me. It's not as if they have been left without other options.
