On Larvotto Beach this cold Sunday morning, December 18, 2011, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, along with 200 brave men and women, participated in the traditional Christmas Bath. Before jumping into the freezing Mediterranean sea the gutsy participates pumped themselves up by listening to traditional Tahitian Pahus (drums) and chanting. Soon, the Sovereign Prince joined the excited participants on the beach where he mingled with them as well as posed for photos. Then they were off… throwing themselves into the 14* water and had one hellva time!
