The former councillor for beaches, Luisa Boné, has highlighted the improvements that have been made on the coast for people who suffer from reduced mobility but who still wish to use the beach and the sea. There are now four accessible bathing points, located on the beaches at Cala Bosque, La Glea, Barranco Rubio and Cala Capitán.
With the arrival of summer and the high season, which will welcome thousands of visitors and holidaymakers to Orihuela Costa these are not the only improvement that they can expect to find.
The lifeguard service is now in full operation on 11 beaches, all of which have also been equipped with new lifeguard offices, toilets and well equipped first aid posts. Many of the beach walkways and footbaths have also been refurbished or replaced s have many of the beach bars and the urban furniture.
Just last week both Luisa Boné and Emilio Bascuñana, the Orihuela mayor, took part in the traditional ceremony of raising the first blue flag on Campoamor (La Glea) beach, one of 12 that have been awarded to the coast, along with a further 5 Quality Q Flags.
The mayor said that he was delighted that Orihuela had been able to maintain its excellent standard on all 11 beaches, at Punta Prima, Cala Bosque, La Caleta, Cala Capitán, Aguamarina, Campoamor, Rubio Ravine, Cala Estaca, Cala Mosca, Cala Cerrada and Mil Palmeras in addition to Campoamor Marina.
He stressed that “Orihuela is the municipality in the Valencian Community with the highest number of Blue Flags, and the second most in Spain, something that demonstrates the clear commitment of the city to the coast, ensuring that the municipality continues to be one of the most attractive destinations in the country.”
