JAVEA town hall in collaboration with the Red Cross lifesaving service now provides up-to-the-minute information about sea conditions.

The Beaches department’s Telegram channel https://t.me/infoplayasxabia is also the same that is used to pass on information regarding the capacity of the Granadella, Portitxol and other coves.

In a bid to prevent the accidents – many of them unnecessary – that regularly occur each summer when swimming or sailing, the Telegram channel will provide information about the weather and the state of the sea, with details of  those parts of the coast where currents and undertow are likely to be most dangerous.

The Beaches department has also produced leaflets with giving basic self-protection advice when planning an excursion.  This ranges from having a fully-charged mobile, should it be necessary to alert the Emergency Services and remembering to let a relative know estimated departure and arrival times.
