Dedicated sea swimming channel in Torrevieja


TORREVIEJA council has unveiled plans to enable an ‘open’ swimming area on the beach at Los Náufragos.

The councillor responsible for beaches, Javier Manzanares, announced that part of the popular beach will be converted into an open water area that will enable the more serious swimmers to train in the sea “but with total security”.  The channel to be created will be 500 metres long and 15 metres wide and indicated by a series of 11 buoys placed every 50 metres along the strip.

Manzanares continued: “The beach of Los Náufragos has been chosen because it is the most protected from the extremes of weather.  We are delighted to be able to encourage, enhance and facilitate water sports and this initiative will certainly be a boost to the sport of triathlon which is booming.”

The councillor went to say that the plans are “innovative, and something which is being done for the first time in Torrevieja, and in line with the improvements being made on all the beach areas. Our goal is for our beaches to be open to everyone. For example, this same beach at Los Náufragos will see three unique services combined for the first time: adapted walkways through which wheelchair users can reach the sea, disabled shower facilities and now a swimming area especially for our sportsmen and women.”
