ALTHOUGH one normally considers that CCTV is installed in order to allow law enforcement officers or private companies to keep an eye on what is going on, it is also very useful for promoting tourism.
For this reason, the Marbella Council has approved the expenditure of €15,000 to allow for the erection of three cameras in San Pedro Alcantara which will screen images live through the municipal website.
The first two cameras will be located on Calle Marqués del Duero and the Boulevard in a position which will allow potential visitors to get an idea of what is going on in the town in these two important entertainment areas.
The third camera will be placed on the beach showing the sea and it is hoped that it will attract surfers if they see the correct state of the water on a real time basis.
There is already another camera which has been placed at the Marbella Marina which is gaining interest and those involved in promoting tourism to the city will be able to give links to their clients to allow them to see what is happening in Marbella and San Pedro.
