The Arona City Council is making sure that all of the municipality's beaches are open for July and August, and are extending their ‘opening’ hours until 9.00pm, and increasing their capacity, maintaining sanitary security measures.

With the arrival of the summer season and tourists to the beaches of Las Vistas, Los Cristianos, Las Galletas and Charco del Baño, Playa Honda, El Callao, Los Tarajales, El Camisón, Los Enojados and La Arenita, the beaches of Varadero Viejo and La Ballena will now be opened as well, meaning all in the municipality are usable.

From today, all the beaches will be open for bathing, sunbathing, walking and water sports activities (without physical contact), from 11am to 9pm. As for the practice of surfing, sport fishing and federated sports such as volleyball, these will be carried out at the aforementioned time on the beaches where their use is allowed, ie Las Vistas, Los Cristianos and Las Galletas, with the exception of areas of Playa Honda and Charco del Baño, which will be open for these sports activities from 7am to 9pm.

As for capacities, the Las Vistas beach, divided into seven sectors, goes from having a capacity of 2,125 to 5,017 people; Los Cristianos, with four sectors, is increased to 1,711 visitors from 728, and El Camisón triples its capacity to 1,000 people. Playa Honda and Charco del Baño no longer have capacity restrictions.

Arona has been one of the coastal tourist municipalities most visited by Tenerife residents, since entering phase 2 of de-escalation, in which the capacity provided for each of them has been respected at all times, as well as the schedule established by the City Council.

With the arrival of the summer season, a significant increase in the influx of visitors is expected.

The mayor of Arona, José Julián Mena, has insisted, as on other occasions, that “our priority has always been the safety and health of the users of our beaches, of our citizens and of national and international tourists who begin to arrive to our municipality. We have been through complicated months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but now, with the transition to the new normal, we are seeing the light, although we cannot drop our guard. The opening of our beaches is one more step, and gives a boost to the business fabric of our municipality”.
