The World Tourism Organization defines sustainable tourism as “tourism that takes full account of its economic, social and
current and future environmental challenges, meeting the needs of visitors, professionals, the environment and host communities”
The principles of sustainable tourism are applicable to any form and any tourist niche, in all types of destinations.
70% of the territory of Mandelieu is classified as a protected natural area. The preservation of our heritage is an absolute priority for the Tourist Office and the community.
At the Mandelieu Convention and Visitors Bureau, we have been committed for several years to sustainable development, in order to minimize the environmental consequences of our activity.
We also make visitors aware of this approach, which, through simple actions, can reduce their environmental impact on the destination.
