Nerja waters facing delay of installation of beaconing to keep swimmers safe in Spain’s Axarquia

THE councillor for Beaches of Nerja, Francisco Arce, has expressed his concern about the delay of the installation of the beaconing of the beaches, a service contracted by the Mancomunidad de Municipios de la Costa del Sol Axarquía, which alleges delays in administrative procedures.

In Nerja, the maritime signalling of the bathing areas stretches for 8,100 metres with 31 buoys. The reserved bathing area is to be marked with a coastal strip formed by a series of buoys arranged 200 metres away, in a line parallel to the coast.

The councillor points out that “this summer more than ever people need security when they go to take a swim, and without beacons, it is difficult to transmit that security, that is why I ask the Commonwealth for greater and better care.”
