THE LEADER of a Cartagena business association COEC has criticised the state of the beaches of the municipality ahead of the crucial Easter season.
COEC president, Pedro Pablo Hernandez, demanded that all departments of local government act with “determination and agility and jointly coordinate all their efforts”.
He fears the state of some of the beaches projects a negative image of the coast to tourists arriving in this area of the coast over the summer months.
With Easter arriving late this year and the current warm weather conditions, he is worried that some of the coastline’s beaches require regeneration, with half-sunken boats and other debris still in evidence from the severe winter storms.
Hernández expressed concern about the evolution of the lagoon before the “imminent” arrival of summer, so he urges administrations to “intensify efforts” and work to ensure the improvement of its state and its evolution.
