“This badge confirms that Andalucía and the province of Málaga are safe and quality destinations. Now security is key to reactivating tourism after the paralysis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, and ‘Andalusia Segura’ is going to give that tranquility that tourists are looking for”, said Ms Rodríguez.
Antonio Fernández, the mayor of Rincón de la Victoria, added, “the reception of this new distinction, places the beaches of our coast in a position of quality and optimum safety, for the enjoyment and the tranquility of our neighbors and visitors”.
He continued, “we are generating that same confidence for the rest of the businesses and services of the municipality in a commitment to our commercial and business sector, such as the provision of financial aid for SMEs and the self-employed to promote activity”.
To obtain this seal, which is voluntary and free, each town hall must present a request to the Provincial Delegation containing their contingency plan for each beach, along with a declaration of the responsible measures that they intend to implement relating to the coronavirus protocols laid out by the Junta de Andalucía, the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization, as reported by diariosur.es.
