Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News -

IN­STAL­LA­TION of an adapted shower (see photo) and wider wooden walk­ways suit­able for peo­ple with re­duced mo­bil­ity are among the im­prove­ments that have been made to beaches in Guardamar del Se­gura.

Coun­cil­lor for beaches Ana Martínez ex­plained that these ini­tia­tives were among the re­quire­ments for the mu­nic­i­pal­ity to ob­tain three Blue Flags – for Playas Cen­tro, Ro­queta and Mon­cayo, plus an­other one for the Ma­rina de las Du­nas.

A base at Playa Ro­queta, which is staffed by Red Cross per­son­nel, also of­fers adapted chang­ing rooms, a re­served shaded area and equip­ment to help peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties to go in the sea.

“The Blue Flags show we have high en­vi­ron­men­tal stan­dards, and good ser­vices and safety for users,” she said.
