Attention, the Prefecture of the Gironde has raised the vigilance forest fire at red level, with a very high risk of 4/5 until further notice. The restrictive measures already in force are strengthened.

Reminder of mandatory rules:

  • Prohibition to wander in the forest (the fire is fixed and not extinguished!)
  • No smoking
  • Stay on the marked paths leading to the Dune
  • Once on the ridge, do not venture beyond the area around the stairs.

Thanks for understanding.
