  • The coastal authority says 75,000 cubic metres of sand will be added to the beaches

Emergency works are being carried out on beaches to repair the damage caused by storms earlier in the year. The works will take place throughout May and are scheduled to be completed before 1 June.

The first part of the project will involve compacting the sand on all the beaches between El Cable and Las Chapas, which suffered severe damage in January and February. Breakwaters and walkways will also be repaired.

The coastal authority says that 75,000 cubic metres of sand will be placed on the municipality's beaches before the summer season begins.
