ENJOYING the beach in Benalmadena is about to become more complicated, as anti-social behaviour measures are introduced – which include banning swimming before 11am.
Under new bylaws approved by the Socialist town hall and to be formally introduced in a month’s time, beachgoers will not be allowed to place their towels and parasols between sun loungers and shore.
On this same stretch of sand, sun lounger touts will no longer be able to peddle their wares.
Environment councillor Inmaculada Vasco says the new measures are aimed at making the beach ‘a place for the whole family’, but PP councillor Rafael Obrero has criticized the moves, arguing that they are ‘restrictive and unfair’ for businesses.
Obrero says the new measures are an excessive limitation to the use and enjoyment of the coast.
The ‘no swimming before 11am’ rule is apparently to enable the beach to be cleaned.
