At the beach

In July and August, from 6am to 6pm: if you wish to share a cool moment with your dog during your summer holidays in Sète, we invite you to go to the Vassal beach, at accesses 72 and 73. After parking in the Castellas public car park, you will find access no. 72 at the bottom of the car park and can enjoy a day of swimming with your dog. 
June and September: no beach in Sète is allowed to dogs.
January to May and October to December: all beaches in Sète are accessible.
Some advice 
Our animal friends also suffer from the heat. Don't leave them in your car while you're out walking! Also remember to take them out at the coolest times of the day so that they don't catch a "heat stroke".
For a better quality of life for everyone, remember to pick up after your dog. Failure to comply with the municipal by-law of 25 September 2006 on dog mess can result in various types of fines. A number of canisac dispensers have been set up throughout the town of Sète. You can also find them in supermarkets for a few euros. 

Lost your dog? 

If you have lost your dog, first contact the Sète municipal police, 595 quai des Moulins, Mas Coulet or +33 (0)4 99 04 77 17. Then contact the Noé animal complex (+33 (0)4 67 27 55 37). It is there that the animals are taken after having been seen by a veterinarian if they are injured (care costs to be paid by the owner). The owner has a legal period of 8 working days to recover his or her animal before it is considered abandoned and given to the Noé Animal Complex SPA shelter in Montpellier.
