Emergency stations "Ecolem

In 2002, the town of Argelès-sur-Mer installed an ECOLEM lifeguard station at the P4 lifeguard station (Poste Central).

Today, all 6 lifeguard posts on the Argelès-sur-Mer beach are of the ECOLEM type.
ECOLEM stands for Ecologie, Littoral et Mer. It comprises a lifeguard post with lookout, an infirmary and disabled-accessible sanitary facilities (P3).
ECOLEM can be completely dismantled to leave a clear space in winter, and is self-sufficient in terms of electricity (solar panels) and water consumption.

An ECOLEM station meets the expectations of tourists and the needs of coastal communities, while preserving the environmental quality of the coastline.

This initiative is a significant step towards sustainable and ecological tourism.

Respecting the environment: it’s up to you!
Every year, the town provides users with over 10,000 beach ashtrays (cigarette butts are one of the biggest sources of pollution for the beaches, which are cleaned daily with sieving machines).
To save water, showers are fitted with timers. In addition, shower use is now more strictly regulated: soap, shower gel and shampoo are strictly forbidden; no prolonged use; shower only when leaving the beach and not after each swim.

 Children's bracelets

Different coloured fluorescent wristbands are available at the aid stations: P1: red, P2: blue, P3: green, P4: yellow, P5: purple, P6: pink.


Dogs and other domestic mammals are forbidden on the entire Argelès-sur-Mer beach, except in the following two areas:
– At the fishermen’s parking lot, south of the seawall (port area closed to bathing)
– the Mas Larrieu nature reserve.
In any case, where their presence is authorized, they must remain on a leash under the responsibility of their master. Bathing or training is prohibited from 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
