Holidaymakers In Benidorm Will Need To Pre-Book Spot16/07/2020
In the most recent years Benidorm in Spain, has become a most popular trending holiday destination in Europe. But, holidaymakers visiting in Benidorm will need to pre-book their spot.
Starting from July 17, 2020 holidaymakers from Europe this including British nationals and other parts of the world will have to pre-book their spot.
As, the resort’s beaches came close to reaching maximum capacity last weekend.
Benidorm mayor Toni Perez confirms a hi-tech system will go live at midday of Thursday.
But, the pioneering scheme was announced last month but has not implemented yet because of the lack of foreign holidaymakers.
Although, there are dates for the activation of the pre-booking system for Poniente Beach has been announced.
Mr Perez said: “We have a system of reservations and limits on the amount of people who can use our beaches that mean we have the safest beaches in Europe.
“The pre-booking system is going to be activated from midday this Thursday.
“People will be able to book their spot on the beach for the following day so this Friday will be the first day beachgoers will have had to use the system to be able to access the beach.
“The system will only be implemented from Thursday at midday for Levante Beach where some problems in terms of people being able to enjoy the beach as they should, have been detected.
He added: “Last weekend and on Saturday especially more than 29,000 people were on our beaches.
“Controlling the amount of people on the beach is a legal obligation and we want to make sure as many as possible can enjoy sunbathing and swimming as possible during any one day.”
Tourists visiting in famous Poniente and Levante beaches already have to stay within one of 5,000 13x13ft squares marked out. There are blue colour-coded for general use or red for the over-70s who have been allocated designated areas.
Outdoor activities like ball games have also been temporarily banned outside of areas.
Meanwhile, beach users will be able to reserve online or in person at one of several reservation stands.
Beach visitors in Benidorm can reserve their booking from here.
