BAR and restaurant owners in Cabo Roig say that business this summer was ‘quite good’ and they had 20 per cent more visitors compared to 2010.
This was confirmed in a meeting between the establishment’s owners and the councillor of Tourism Pedro Mancebo at the Playa Flamenca Town Hall. All the businessmen present are members of the Cabo Roig business owner and hospitality association.
A request for more rubbish containers and waste paper bins in Orihuela-Costa was made by business association members.
Mancebo agreed and suggested that the whole area should also be thoroughly cleaned up and palm trees professionally cut to improve the appearance of the area.
Councillor Mancebo informed of a new leaflet which will soon be available. It is being compiled for people in Orihuela Costa who wish to start up their own business and includes information regarding which licenses for which type of business are required, legal requirements, as well as a list of fully licensed engineers and architects.
Before Easter 2012, an advertising campaign that promotes Orihuela-Costa and other areas of Spain and Europe will be rolled out.
As of November this year, flights from the UK and Ireland to Murcia will be stopped, according to Orihuela Tourism Councillor Pedro Mancebo.
Murcia airport is a very important location for holidaymakers and the residents who stay over on the coast during the winter months who wish to travel to Orihuela-Costa since it is a 20-minute drive away. Mancebo said he would contact Murcia and Alicante airports and also the relevant airlines to check the situation and will also enquire regarding transport possibilities from the airports to Orihuela-Costa.
