An­chors away

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By Jack Troughton

TOURISM at sea con­tin­ues to raise en­vi­ron­men­tal concerns at a tiny Costa Blanca cove that acts as a mag­net for boat own­ers. Cala Sar­dinera in Jávea was once tra­di­tion­ally home to sar­dine fish­er­men – to­day its clear waters and safe swim­ming at­tract large num­bers of mo­tor cruis­ers and yachts, but, many vis­i­tors com­plain about nau­ti­cal over­crowd­ing.

The area is pa­trolled by police be­cause of the po­ten­tially dam­age caused to the seabed by boats an­chor­ing in the cove; rated as one of the most beau­ti­ful on the Va­len­cia coast. Buoys have been fixed to al­low boats to tie up and skip­pers are en­cour­aged to use th­ese or to moor against other ves­sels.
