The Salobreña Mayor, María Eugenia Rufino Morales, speaking on behalf of the two towsn said that the money will be used for three purposes. The first is to improve accessibility for people with reduced mobility on La Charca beach, near the Los Faroles restaurant. In addition an accessible bathing area will be created.
Secondly the bathroom facilities which are ugly and out of date will be replaced by others that are more pleasing on the eye, more modern, efficient and self-cleaning.
Thirdly, changes will be made to ensure the environment is protected and as continues to be a pleasant experience for both users and wildlife. Information points will be placed along the entire coastline that make users aware of the importance of the marine environment whilst also adding to the visual appeal of the area.
