Although motorhomes are frequently spotted in coastal areas during the winter months, the influx this year at El Playazo beach in Nerja has attracted numerous complaints from both residents and business owners.

Last week, around 50 were counted on the westernmost point of the beach - a figure which has remained the same for more than a month.

The beach, where the Chanquete World Music Festival takes place every year, has been inundated with these vehicles, which unlike caravans are not illegal to park, since height restriction barriers were removed.

When asked about the situation, mayor Rosa Arrabal (PSOE) said that part of the land was privately owned and was the responsibility of the owner to control the vehicles.
