Agents evict 50 people camping on La Caleta beach in Costa Adeje
The Environmental surveillance team formed by the Tenerife Cabildo, evicted more than 50 people who were camping on the La Caleta beach by the Los Burros ravine and the Diego Hernández cliffs in Costa Adeje on Saturday, as it is now a protected area after the mass evictions last year.
The Cabildo reported today in a statement for the press, that Environment Agents have issued eight sanctions for infraction this weekend in areas of La Caleta to people who wanted to camp in various places, encouraged by the good weather and coinciding with the traditional days of the carnival.
The surveillance at this Site of Scientific Interest (SIC) continues, and the agents who carry out reconnaissance rounds, have already drawn up a large number of records since the eviction took place last summer, and at the end of 2020 even had to stop people trying to reoccupy the caves by moving mattresses and belongings back to the natural space during the night.
