Sunbathers Banned on Riviera Beach for Royal Saudi Stay

Monday, 20 July 2015 01:33 PM

VALLAURIS, France (AP) — The likely visit of Saudi Arabia's king to his family's Riviera mansion has stirred the ire of beachgoers who will be banned from a stretch of sand.

King Salman is expected to vacation soon at the mansion that sits above an isolated — but public — beach near Juan-les-Pins.

Despite protests, the region's state official, Philippe Castanet, said the beach would be temporarily closed if the king visits — which regional security chief Francois-Xavier Lauch said is nearly certain.

Lauch said by telephone Monday that boats would also be banned from plying the Mediterranean near the mansion.

Last week, angry beachgoers won a temporary halt to unauthorized work ahead of the royal visit, notably a cement slab on the sand for an elevator allowing direct beach access from the mansion.
