These private beaches that no longer exist

Some private beaches are very old and their date of creation goes back several decades but others no longer exist. The beach is part of the maritime domain and a private beach must obtain through the prefectures a concession of up to 12 years. Generally a private beach disappears when its concession is not renewed because given to another beach attendant, the beach then changes its name. In other, rarer cases the lot of the concession is simply removed following an application of the coastal law or if the place becomes classified as a natural area.

Here is a list of private beaches or huts closed permanently or rather that no longer exist. If you know of a beach that is not listed, please report it using the contact page.
