AS the summer season is almost upon the people of the Costa Blanca, the region begins to prepare for the influx of tourists and with it the logistics of making sure they have an enjoyable time on the area’s beaches.
The Marina Baixa region is no exception as it has more than 20 kilometres of beaches to ensure are fully equipped.
Five municipalities – Benidorm, Villajoyosa, Alfaz del Pi, Altea and Finestrat – will have a total of 8,200 of the famous blue sun beds, meaning that 400 will occupy each kilometre of sand, and for those that can’t face simply getting red under the blazing summer sun, there are a further 3,000 umbrellas available.
Unsurprisingly, it’s Benidorm where the greatest concentration of supplies is heading with a planned total of 6,400 beds and 1,850 sun shades along its five kilometres of coastline. This is in addition to water platforms with slides, cable skiing, jet skis, surf and paddle boards, among other attractions that make up the beach entertainment for all the family.
A total of 36 personnel will be on hand to ensure the safety of bathers at all times, based in the observation chairs and patrolling along the shore. First aid staff and members of the Local Police will also me more than visible during the 2018 summer.
