Benidorm Beach Helpers
Benidorm has introduced its squad of 58 ‘beach helpers,’ who will aid in keeping the resort’s beaches COVID-free until mid-September. The Valencian Community’s ‘Safe Summer’ program will give information and help to unemployed persons under the age of 30. It’s a repetition of last year’s program, with €4.5 million invested to recruit a thousand workers to cover the 71 coastal communities in the Valencia area.
The Benidorm team officially begins work with local personnel, thanks to a €376,000 grant from the regional government and Benidorm council. The personnel will explain tourists how the beaches have been split into COVID-safe zones and offer facts regarding capacity restrictions and other health safety issues.
Benidorm Beach Parcels
Benidorm has divided up Poniente and Levante beaches into 5,000 13ft x 13ft cordoned off plots, with a maximum of four persons permitted in each square, in an attempt to entice British tourists back. There will even be a green zone designated for those over the age of 70.
Bathers may use an online system to reserve a spot on Levante or Poniente beaches, as the local government strives to manage capacity and assure safety. The reservation is for that tiny place, and you’ll definitely have to wait two or three days to obtain a spot there, but it’s not like that all down the coast.”
Bathers will be able to preserve social distance while enjoying the sun thanks to the areas that have been developed. Face masks are not required on the beaches, however they must be worn when approaching the beach. Businesses that typically rent out water floats, jet skis, as well as snack bars, appear to be closed.
Benidorm Beach Patrols
Meanwhile, beach patrols have been increased by local police to protect the safety of people enjoying the weather. The beaches are patrolled by police to keep an eye on social distancing. At the beach’s entrances, monitors tally the number of visitors and clean the pathways. In Benidorm, everyone who is out in public must hide their face at all times, with the exception of beaches and when people are eating and drinking.
