St Raphaël Agay









Initial characteristics of the beach :

The beach of St Raphael Agay was suffering from erosion of 4000m3 per year with a shoreline retreat of 0,5 meter ; sand nourishments were made every year.




The works were carried out in 2013. The installation of the Ecoplage® system consists of :

  • a drain of 600m on the upper part of the beach
  • a gravity collector pipe
  • a pump station hidden in the beach access stairs
  • a discharge pipeline


Post installation :

  • Stabilization of the shoreline
  • Increase of 3 to 8 meters in beach width
  • Cancellation of sand nourishment
  • Faster beach recovery after storms
  • Dismantling of groynes
