Orihuela Costa - Beaches begin to open again
19 May 2020
Orihuela's monitoring commission has announced that of the eleven beaches initially opened for water sports for professional and federated athletes, five of these are now open to residents of the Orihuela Costa for walking.
Residents who live 1 km from the following beaches will be able to walk during the time zones allowed at: Punta Prima, Cala Estaca, Cala Bosque, Playa de la Caleta and Barranco Rubio. This is great news for local families - see photo - as children enjoy an afternoon down on the beach at Rubio playa, Campoamor.
The other beaches of the Orihuela Costa (Cala Mosca, Cala Capitán, Cala Cerrada, Aguamarina, Glea and Mil Palmeras) are open only and exclusively for water sports with different security measures.
The opening of all the Orihuela beaches for walking is scheduled for May 22, respecting the rules imposed, with sunbathing, swimming, and sitting on the sand prohibited.
As established in stage 3 of the de-escalation plan implemented by the government, the beaches are currently being repaired and prepared for their scheduled ´full´ reopening for all activities on June 8th - great news and just in time for many residents as another hot summer is well on its way.
