Torrevieja has approved a two-year contract for the employment of 119 beach attendants who will control access to all beaches in the municipality, at a cost of 1,881,279 euros (940,639 euros each year).

The service will cover three periods:
Low season 1 of Easter (10 days).
Low season 2, from June 15 to 30 and September 1 to 15 (30 days).
High season, from July 1 to August 31 (62 days).
The number of personnel, toilet and footspa cleaners, and daily assembly and disassembly personnel in low season 1 will be 67, while in low season 2 it will be 72 and in high season (July and August) it will be 117.
They will work from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the beaches with the greatest influx of people, and from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. , on those sparsely occupied beaches.
