OLIVA is working on plans to regulate kitesurfing on its beaches.
The municipality is already popular with kitesurfers, hosting important international championships, pointed out Oliva’s Tourism councillor, Kino Calafat.
This year the town hall is introducing new measures enabling kitesurfers to practise the sport with every legal guarantee in safe anti-Covid conditions, Calafat revealed to the local Spanish media.
The Tourism department, the councillor continued, will make it easy for visitors to Oliva’s beaches by providing them with a cordoned-off area for kitesurfing.
“This won’t be the same as always,” Calafat promised. Although free, he explained, it would be necessary to pass two controls before reaching the water.
As in previous years, the activity can be practised between 2pm and 8pm, but the space set aside for kitesurfers will be much bigger.
Entrance and exit accesses that ensure social distancing will be the same as last year, so that new arrivals do not have to pass close to those who are leaving, Calafat said. There are also plans for changing rooms on the beach.
“This year we are going big with kitesurfing,” he told the regional daily, Levante.
“It is a sports and tourist draw, attracting more people each year, and Oliva’s playas, like Tarifa’s, are now famous both nationally and internationally.”
