Fuengirola beaches to raise Q for Quality flags

FOR the first time ever, Fuengirola’s beaches have been awarded Q for Quality flags by the ICTE Spanish Touristic Quality Institute.
The flags are to be raised on Friday 8, in a special ceremony starting at noon on San Francisco beach, which Mayor Ana Mula has invited all local people to attend.
Well-known swimmer David Mecca and local swimmers Pablo Mira, Maria de Valdes and Salvador Cano will be diving from a yacht 200 metres out to sea and swimming to shore with the flags, which have been awarded for the 7.5 kilometres of beaches between the Castle and Carvajal.
Colour will be provided at the event by 200 local schoolchildren wearing special t-shirts and carrying banners, who will be taken to the beach on the tourist train.
The mayor explained that this was the first time the town had applied for the prestigious flags and expressed her pride that the strict tests had been passed.
“I’d like to stress the hard work put in on a daily basis by municipal workers and the collaboration provided by the beach bars to allow us to be awarded the flags,” Mula said.
“Receiving these flags is just another reason to keep on working to improve our services. We’ve made a leap forwards and are now encouraged to create more new projects. I invite everyone to come and celebrate with us on San Francisco beach,” the mayor concluded.
