Access to Santa Cruz beaches closed after reaching capacity
CECOPAL has tweeted today that they are closing the accesses to the beaches in Tenerife's capital, as they have already reached their permitted capacities, on what is the first Saturday they have been open since the pandemic started, and Dia Canaria.
The following beaches are already full: Las Teresitas, Las Gaviotas, Almáciga, Roque de las Bodegas, and Benijo, as are main parking areas due to a high influx of vehicles.
In Las Teresitas a reinforced Civil Protection unit has been installed to control the area.
Las Teresitas beach, is the main bathing area of Santa Cruz, which has an area of 75,000 square metres, an area that is complicated to implement the measures to meet the demands of the Ministry of Health, for the enjoyment of the beaches.
However, both Las Teresitas and the other beaches in Santa Cruz, have welcomed bathers since last Monday, when the Island entered phase 2 of the de-escalation plan, without too many complications.
