TORREVIEJA has invested €63,000 to rejuvenate the sand on Los Locos beach, which was severely affected by the strong winds, high rainfall and sea storms that battered the Alicante coastline in March and early April 2022.

Following the various damages caused to the coastline of the province of Alicante, Torrevieja city council called for immediate action after deeming it ‘extremely necessary’ so an executive order for works was passed on April 11.

As a result, around 2,500 tonnes of sand will be transported to Los Locos beach in lorries, deposited, spread and levelled out.

The city council noted that the new sand will have the same physical and chemical characteristics as the current sand, which was topped up previously in 2019.

Worryingly, Spain is expected to experience unstable weather this week due to an Atlantic front, according to Spain’s State Meteorological Agency.

AEMET warned of an Atlantic front with a storm approaching Spain on Monday, May 30. This subsequently destabilised the atmosphere, bringing rain to the extreme west, and the Cantabrian area, with possible storms in inland areas.
