TORROX has announced a series of measures to ensure better use of its beaches and correct functioning of services, the council has announced.
For the first time, the town has launched an information campaign and will be distributing more than 5,000 leaflets detailing beach regulations and providing information on protocols to follow in the event of the presence of jellyfish or if children go missing.
The leaflets will help ensure locals and visitors alike know the rules and keep the beaches clean and user-friendly, local mayor, Oscar Medina, said.
Tourism and Beaches councillor, Sandra Extremera, explained that the leaflets are now available from tourist offices, police stations and municipal buildings, and explained a new system launched this summer to help reunite lost children with their families as quickly as possible.
Lifeguards will be handing out wristbands to youngsters on the beaches, with colour-coding for different areas, and if children are reported missing the information will be quickly shared with lifeguards and emergency services to locate them and return them their to their families swiftly.
