Costa del Sol Town with Blue Flag Beach also has Seaweed Problems

EVEN though the town of San Pedro Alcantara has kilometres of beach front and has recently won a Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety, there are still some problems on the seashore.

Residents complain on social media that there are areas which are covered with either washed up seaweed or algae which has been left to rot.

This is a magnet for mosquitos and often smells badly, making it unpleasant for families to use those beaches which in turn means that other unpolluted beaches run the risk of overcrowding as people avoid the problem areas.


This has been going on for some time and these beaches certainly needing very regular cleaning.
