By Laura Silver for MailOnline. You've probably noticed an influx of hot dog legs, beach feet and dreamy sunsets on your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds over the course of summer. Now one French beach is looking to put a stop to this with a ban on beach selfies. A section of The Garoupe, a popular beach in Southern France, is cracking down on people constantly boasting about their holidays to friends back at home by working with mobile network, Three, to create designated 'No Braggies Zones'. Scroll down for video. A spokesperson for the beach said: 'The Garoupe beaches are among the most glamorous and pristine beaches in all of France and we want people to be able to enjoy our exclusive beach in the moment, not spending the majority of their time bragging to their friends and family back home. The 'braggie', similar to the 'selfie', is a word that has firmly wiggled its way into the popular lexicon, and is a term that's been coined to describe the humble brag pictures of people enjoying a fancy cocktail, walking in the sand or gazing at a sunset.
