Alicante’s beach safety services now cover San Gabriel Beach, in addition to San Juan, El Postiguet, Albufereta, Almadraba, Urbanova, Aguamarga (Doggy Beach), and Tabarca.

New lifeguard contract

The lifeguard services contract has been awarded to a consortium led by Ebone Servicios Educación Deporte and Emsebur, securing an exceptional score of 100 points in the evaluation process. Provita Sociedad Cooperativa Madrileña, Forseguer Servicios del Sur, and Intur Esport were also contenders.

Enhanced resources

The new contract, extendable for up to five years, emphasises increased human and material resources and enhanced service flexibility. Under these terms, the lifeguard team is bolstered with 50 personnel during peak season, 51 during mid-season, and 14 during the off-season. Material resources have also been augmented, with the addition of two watercraft and five rapid intervention vehicles, equipped with comprehensive medical supplies.
