SURFS UP: New surf area in Orihuela.
Surfs up in Orihuela as the Department of Beaches sets up a dedicated surf area for those that enjoy riding the waves.
A DESIGNATED area in Cala Cerrada, which is the only beach on the Oriolano coast that, according to experts, has the optimal conditions and characteristics for surfing, was chosen in a collaboration with a group of surfers who practice this sport on the Oriolano coast.
The decision to make a specific area available to practice the sport, was announced by Ramón López, Orihuela’s Beaches and Residents Security Councillor, who stated “with this action we regulate the practice of this water sport while guaranteeing the safety of bathers.”
Access to the cove in Cala Cerrada has an information panel displaying the following rules:
“Orihuela can become a benchmark for surf tourism because there are weather components that allow practicing it throughout the year,” concluded Ramón López.
This is another great step to regaining tourism within the area and will be a positive addition to sporting activities that participants will travel to see, and take part in.
