FIVE Cuevas del Almanzora beaches now boast the Andalucia regional government stamp for safety.
The Quitapellejos in Palomares, Villaricos’ Siret cove and main beach, Pozo del Esparto and the El Calon beach have all merited the ‘Andalucia Segura’ (Safe Andalucia) distinction, identifying them as locations which comply with World Health Organisation safety measures for dealing with Covid-19.
Gaining the safety recognitions from the Junta de Andalucia’s Tourism regional ministry is proof of its “commitment to the safety and health of all beach-goers, and everyone who enjoys the locality’s coves and beaches”, Cuevas council affirmed.
The local authority said its aim is for Spanish and foreign tourists to choose the municipality as a holiday destination.
It is currently immersed in an intensive tourism promotional campaign, highlighting the locality’s cultural and archaeological attractions, active tourism opportunities and cuisine, in addition to its offer of sun and sea.
