THE Protejamos la Playa group collected 27,000 signatures demanding a halt to more frontline buildings in Denia.

Their principal concern is the almost-completed apartment block at Les Marines adjoining Blay Beach, which is so badly eroded that its sand has practically disappeared.

Protejamos la Playa is also challenging Environment Ministry plans to regenerate the coast between Denia port and the mouth of the River Girona.


“This recuperation will be of little use unless something is done at the same time to prevent the progressive destruction of the coast caused by over-development,” the group added.

As well as constructing breakwaters and depositing half a million cubic metres of sand along the coast, it was also necessary to halt “new excesses” they said.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
