From Monday the 15th, beach users can use the new APP to control the capacity in real time. The same with the public showers and toilets, where daily cleaning has been reinforced, assigning one person with cleaning and disinfection tasks per toilet.

This gives the green light to the summer season with the opening of all public services distributed among the four beaches of the coast.
