ALMERIA City Hall recently issued a list of what is and isn’t acceptable on its beaches. Although most rules were overlooked during the St John’s Night celebrations on June 24, Almeria’s corporation has outlined required etiquette in black and white. Sound systems and musical instruments must not be loud enough to disturb other beachgoers at any time of the day, the municipal ordinance declared. All noise loud enough to be heard inside properties on the front line and second line of the beach is prohibited after midnight. Unlicensed vending is banned on promenades and cooking and barbecues are not allowed on the beaches. Bath gel and shampoo may not be used in the beach showers and life is made tougher for smokers who may not stub out cigarette ends in the sand. Together with motor vehicles, all printed and audio-visual advertising is barred from the beaches while ball games are restricted to specially- designated areas. Animals, including pets are banned, and horses may not be ridden on the beach or in the sea. Cats are also out of luck as the mayor’s edict reminded members of public that they should refrain from feeding the colonies that inhabit the breakwaters on health grounds.
