Platja de Palma: new lifeguard for a safer beach
THE Regional Government of the Balearic Islands has urged Palma Council to increase safety in the city’s beach areas.
The region’s General Emergencies Department has asked the Palma government to reinforce safety measures due to the increase of authorised temporary commercial activities, the higher numbers of visitors and the extension of hours in which the public is allowed to use beach facilities.
As result, the council has approved a €35,249 budget extension to hire two additional lifeguards for the areas of Cala Major and the Platja de Palma.
Platja de Palma, considered the city’s flagship beach, will now have the use of seven surveillance towers during the summer season.
