ARO PLAYERO: Social distancing made easy Photo credit: Alfaz town hall

ALBIR beach was the setting for the launch of the Aro Playero (Beach Hoop) which guarantees correct social distancing.

At the same, the beach was also chosen to shoot an advertising spot for the hoops which will soon be available France, Germany, Portugal, Italy, Greece and the US as well as Spain.

Its inventor, engineer Oscar Pavon, has come up with a “simple but sufficiently clear” system that can be spread out on the sand, enabling beachgoers to maintain the anti-virus distancing required by the health authorities.


People can use the hoops, which have now been patented, to define their own personal space without affecting that of others, Pavon explained.

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.
