Prohibition of bathing
The President of the Territorial Council, Mrs. Aline Hanson, adopted a territorial decree on 16 October 2014 prohibiting bathing on all the coast of Saint Martin, following the passage of hurricane Gonzalo. In order to know the state of water quality, the Regional Health Agency is currently collecting samples from all the beaches of the Community. The bathing ban therefore remains applicable until the results of these tests confirm the good quality of our bathing waters. In anticipation of these analyzes, which are due to arrive this weekend, the Community asks you to respect these basic precautions after a hurricane.
