Around mid-May, the beaches of Lloret de Mar are going to be equipped with a wide-range of services, said the city councilor Ignasi Riera. To prepare beaches for the summer season, from the treasury of Lloret de Mar each year is allocated 1.3 million euros. This year, an additional sum of 55 thousand euros is allocated to the program “Active Beach”. This program includes a variety of play areas for children from 3 to 12 years old; beach libraries with books and magazines in various languages, sports and activities such as football, beach volleyball, beach tennis, aerobics, water sports and much more.
The main reason for investing so heavily in the equipment of beaches, is the fact that beaches are the main tourist attraction in Lloret de Mar. Most of the budget, 1,265,000 euros to be precise, are destined for maintenance and management of beaches, rescuers, and monitoring services.
Starting next week, life-saving services will start their work on the central beach of Lloret de Mar and Fenals beach, meanwhile on other beaches they will commence on June 15. Beaches of Lloret de Mar possess a certificate that designates them as “family-friendly places”, a merit awarded by the Government of Catalonia.
