Don't think that you can swim in normal swimtrunks (type boxer), No, you must use tight speedo's like a gay from the 70's. I felt like Borat's brother. That's because hygien reason, they say????? Still they neither wash or use soap before entering the water.

Though, they (or some) take a shower afterwards, but with their clothes on?? If one tries to take of ones swimming trunks off to wash, an angry woman storms in, but still, about 50 % of the women swimming, are swimming top-less. French people = Strange people.

Swimminig toys for the children are not for use, they are just on display.

Instead we recommend to go to the beach instead, even if it is cold in April.
