Half a million euros has been awarded to Nerja Council to spruce up and enhance its coastline – the only municipality in the Malaga province to receive the Ministry of Tourism grant.
THE €498,213 will be used to improve accessibility at Torrecilla beach and reform of the promenade to house toilets, a treatment and first aid room, and buy an all-terrain vehicle for rescue and security.
Drainage will be upgraded and four ecological islands will be placed on El Playazo beach and Larenovation along with informative posters.
Mayor José Alberto Armijo: said: “Paying greater attention to our beaches is a very wise political decision, thinking about our tourism future and therefore about the economy and employment of our people.
“I want to reiterate my gratitude to the Junta de Andalucía for its firm commitment to Nerja, and also highlight and thank the work of Mari Carmen López, Councilor for Beaches, and Alberto Portillo, as Local Development Agent, for their involvement in obtaining such an important subsidy that will allow the execution of projects that will undoubtedly contribute to improving the image and services of our beaches ”.
