BENIDORM’S Mayor, Toni Perez, has urged the public to adhere to restrictions put in place to combat the spread of coronavirus.

The town’s beaches and coves have been closed on the orders of the town hall.

This followed yesterday’s veto on swimming and sunbathing, extended to a total ban encompassing the entire seafront in order to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

“Barring the public from the sea, beaches and promenades is one of the hardest decisions for any mayor to take,” declared Perez.

“I am sure that I can count on the understanding and responsibility of all of us in Benidorm in these moments,” he said.

Perez called for “responsibility, prudence, public spiritedness and solidarity” on the part of the local population in complying down to the last detail with the protection measures announced by the health authorities and public administrations.

This included the restrictions that now apply to the Levante, Mal Pas and Poniente beaches as well as the Tio Ximo and l’Almadrava beaches, the mayor said.
