The announcement was made yesterday, Wednesday, June 2, by the mayor of Beaches, José Carlos Martín. The councillor said that in comparison to last year “we have further strengthened the service that we have been giving to our users”, highlighting that the new life-saving drones “are capable of transporting inflatable vests by air for times when a rescue has to be carried out or a bather is in trouble, being a quick mechanism when it comes to reaching them”.

Martín also pointed out the service improvements on the beaches that include the coastline divided into 53 areas in which lifeguards will observe each day from 11 am until 8 pm. In addition to this, there will also be an ambulance for basic life support, a nurse and two technicians.

Our lifeguard service is perfectly equipped and has excellent professionals and year after year we work to ensure that the beaches are in perfect condition so that our users and visitors can enjoy the tranquillity that they should have when they come to enjoy them”, Martin added.


The mayor also valued “the quality of the Mijas coast, which has allowed the city to display 3 blue flags, 9 Q for Quality and an ISO14001, as well as a path and a blue centre.”
