Wedding couple fined after beach ceremony

THE General Director of Costas, which controls the Spanish coastline, has fined a couple €6,010 for having their wedding on the beach, specifically on the Playa Abama, in Guia de Isora, in October 2019.

The couple were given notification, stating that the fine was because they had occupied a public coastal area, without requesting the relevant paperwork.

The notification explains that an area on the beach, approximately 10x10sq/m, was taken over for the ceremony, with several chairs, and a small arch with a table.

Weddings on the beach are permitted, but only with the relevant paperwork, with specific companies organising these events, mainly on the Las Teresitas beach, as well as the Abama beach in Guia de Isora. The rules were set in place in 2015.

For those wanting to marry on the beach, the company or the couple wanting to tie the knot, must request authorisation from Costas, in Santa Cruz, 169 las Ramblas, the application specifying the square metres being occupied on the beach, as well as other important details including the number of guests, decorations, etc. There will be a fee, depending on where you perform the ceremony,

As well as requesting the authorisation from Costas, permission from the city council is also necessary.
