Opposition councillors in Teguise have criticised the closure of Playa de las Cucharas in Costa Teguise for bathing.

PP councillors have asked the council to explain the closure, “which gives a terrible image for tourism.”

The PP stated that the Barranco del Hurón runs into the waters off the beach after heavy rain, and this can cause sewage to washed into the water, too. They called on the council to carry out works that will stop this happening “on a Blue Flag beach”. However, this has not been confirmed as the reason for the closure.

The PP also lamented that a jet ski tournament had been cancelled for the second time owing to the closure.
