Although everyone is waiting for the final regulations in the BOE, town halls will decide which beaches are opening when, and how they implement the health meaures.

The Ayuntamiento has decided that it will only open three of its beaches at the moment to the public from Monday, which are:
Los Cristianos
Las Vistas
and Las Galletas.

- These will now open for everyone from 10am - 6pm.
- The capacity will be limited, being controlled by a single entrance and exit access.
- It is obligatory to take your own towel to sit on.
- no buckets and spades, ball games, nor mats will be allowed.
- Sunbeds and umbrellas services will not be available
- showers will be closed, but urinals will be open.
- It is forbidden to bring cool boxes, food and drinks.

Something similar will happen in Adeje, where only two beaches are guaranteed to be open at the moment:
La Enramada
and Playa Fañabé.

Others will depend on their concessionaires, according to councillor Adolfo Alonso, who has asked for "unity of action" to know what to expect in a phase where, theoretically the recreational use of beaches and sunbathing, was not scheduled until phase 3.

Alonso understands that it will not be easy to organize access when "each beach is a world" and said that although the guidelines laid out by FECAM make sense, they're not all feasible to have ready on all beaches by Monday."

Signage will be used to inform the public what they can and can't do, and each beach will have controls, security, and surveillance to ensure that distancing is observed, and food and drink is prohibited.

More details will follow as they are made available.
