ORIHUELA council will more than double its income from beach bar operations after splitting up the old single contract into five bundles.

The authority will play financial catch up as bars were closed last year and none were open for Easter- meaning an estimated loss to municipal coffers of close to €3 million.

It will now earn almost €2 million per year compared to the previous coast-wide deal with Chiringuitos del Sol that netted €900,000.

Two lots have been awarded to Chiringuitos de Sol totalling €1.2 million, covering Cala Cerrada, Cala Bosque, Cala Capitan, La Caleta and Aquamarina.

The bars at Cala Bosque and La Caleta will be open all year and will include toilet facilities, with La Caleta expected to start trading soon.

Two other tenders went to Cafe Ole & Friends for bars at La Glea, Barranco Rubio and Mil Palmeras.

A contract to run water sports on the Orihuela Costa was awarded to Recreativos Acuaticos Horadada.

One franchise award is still pending to cover Punta Prima, Cala Mosca and Cala Estaca.
