The beaches of Rincón de la Victoria and Vélez-Málaga in the Axarquía area on the eastern stretch of the Costa del Sol start their summer lifeguard services as of Saturday 1 June.

In Rincón de la Victoria, the service starts a fortnight earlier than last summer, according to the town hall. A team of 22 people; a coordinator, a nurse and lifeguards will be on duty from 12pm to 8pm Monday to Sunday.

Along the 22 kilometres of beaches in Vélez-Málaga (from Chilches in the west to Mezquitilla in the east) the service will run from 12pm to 8pm in June, extending to 10.30am to 8pm in July and August. The service will run until 30 September. The canine lifeguard service also starts on Saturday 1 June.

There are also adapted bathing areas in Benajarafe (Antigua Estación), Valle-Niza (Castillo del Marqués), Torre del Mar (Laguna Chica, Faro and central lifeguard post) and Caleta de Vélez. The contact telephone number to request the adapted bathing service is 645 64 63 63 23 or by speaking to lifeguards at the lifeguard posts which are located next to the adapted.

Vélez-Málaga continues to use the Gecor beach application, with all the information about the beaches, services, sea conditions, presence of jellyfish and more. This same application has a button to access a live ‘webcam’ to know the state of the beaches.
