ESTEPONA Town Hall is urging the coastal department to provide more sand for the local beaches. The councillor for beaches, Susana Aragon, announced that some part of the coast need an “immediate solution”, especially in some of the coves which have lost sand during the storms of recent months.
“Estepona is a tourist town which cannot let the state of its beaches fall into disrepair” she said, while commenting that it was regrettable how the former corporation had not carried out the necessary procedures to guarantee the beaches were in top shape for the summer season. Now, anything that is done, she said, risks disturbing beachgoers.
“The only thing the Coastal Department has done over the past months is remove cane and weeds” said Aragon, but there are areas which don’t even have any sand. The areas which need urgent work carried out are Benamara, Santa Marta, Isdabe, Atalaya, Cabo Bermejo, Guadalobon and Costa Natura.
