Restrictions and tough guidelines will still be in place, but Guardamar is proud to announce their beaches are very much ‘open for business’.

The regional government, the Generalitat Valenciana, has sent all coastal areas a ‘Safe Beaches’ guide, outlining measures and controls.

To the south, in both Orihuela Costa and Pilar de la Horadada, an opening date has yet to be set, with Orihuela’s Emergency Councillor, Victor Valverde, citing their inability to guarantee safety across 11 beaches.

The mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolon, has announced that their beaches will open between June 8 and June 14, once safety and hygiene measures are all in place.

Dolon also announced that Torrevieja may be able to use the remote app system, previously reported by the Olive Press.
