The Town Hall of Fuengirola has announced that its beaches are now off limits to the public for the next 14 days. The restrictive measures come after Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez declared a ‘state of emergency’ yesterday.
The beach town’s latest ‘tough’ measures are in line with other coastal areas of the Costa Del Sol, such as Vélez-Málaga, to help contain the Coronavirus and prevent it from spreading further. The 10 beaches of Vélez-Málaga have already raised the red flag warning to prevent the public from entering the beach areas and sea.
In an official note, Fuengirola’s Town Hall has asked the public to respect the restriction, and refrain from going to the beach. Like Vélez-Málaga, it has also raised the red flag warning across the stretch of its beaches.
Fuengirola’s Mayor, Ana Mula, also announced the closure of children’s parks, public workout areas, as well as all the town’s activities for the next fortnight. Other public establishments such as museums, tourist offices and libraries will also remain closed, as recommended by the government as the country prepares for lock down.
