  • Tourism businesses have offered help to look at ways to protect their premises that suffer when storms damage the beach

An MPs' committee in Madrid has agreed to a study being carried out on ways to protect the shoreline at La Carihuela beach.

The famous beach is being increasingly eroded.

The study will look at a public-private initiative, including a possible breakwater costing between 1.5 and 2.5 million euros.
