Altea opens beach bars
The concessions have been awarded for two 'chiringuitos', four kiosks and sunbed hire across the different beach areas of Altea. A number of requirements had to be fulfilled such as self-sufficient energy - solar or wind, environmentally friendly materials, Wi-Fi and access for disabled users. There were also strict rulings on the employment of personnel to staff them, which included a minimum on a fixed contract and encouragement to consider taking on those with disabilities and from troubled backgrounds. The 'chiringuitos' will remain open until the end of October and kiosks until end September.
