The beaches of Jesuitas, El Conde and Higuericas de Pilar de la Horadada were all closed on Saturday afternoon – due to bathers exceeding the regulated capacity, in accordance with the covid-19 protocol.
As temperatures hit 30 degrees, hundreds flocked to the beaches but were denied entry, only being allowed onto the beach as people vacated.
The Policia Local put the security measures in place in cooperation with Proteccion Civil and the Lifeguard Service as they regulated the numbers for all of the afternoon.
Bathers were not allowed to enter the beaches until people left, using an entry/depart area, due to over capacity.
During surveillance the Local Policia issued a number of sanctions to groups of people who were not adhering the health and safety coronavirus instructions put in place by the National and Municipal Governments.
