Save our beach

TOURISTS joined locals to protest against a new hotel on a Vejer de la Frontera beach on Saturday.

Plans to build a complex just 400 metres from the stunning El Palmar beach faced fierce opposition at a huge protest by the sea.

More than 38,000 names have rejected the development through a Facebook petition organized by ‘La Plataforma Salvar el Palmar’.

The protest calls for “another form of tourism, truly sustainable, ecological and local.”

But Diario de Cádiz reports that the socialist Mayor of Vejer, Antonio Verdú, has defended the project and is planning an even bigger one.
