Javea's Beaches Ready for High Season

Javea’s beaches welcome the summer with all its services and surveillance at full capacity. Today the mayor, José Chulvi, and the councillors for Tourism, Pilar Zamora, Environment, Doris Courcelles, and Services, Kika Mata, hoisted the blue flag on the Arenal beach.

Today the protection of the beaches provided by the Red Cross is working at full capacity, with a staff of 45 professionals, including lifeguards and health emergencies technicians. The schedule will be 11.00 to 19.00 hours on the beaches of La Grava, Granadella, Portitxol and Benisero, and 10.00-20.00 hours on the Arenal, the busiest bathing area and this year there is a new bathing system with a chair located on the south side of the beach.

This beach has also launched a bathing service thanks to Red Cross volunteers. The president of the organisation, José Luis Domenech, explained that there are now three amphibious chairs that allow people with reduced mobility to enjoy the sea. Those interested in enjoying this service can apply by phone at the local headquarters (965791961) and will be collected from their own homes by volunteers with a suitable vehicle, to take them to the beach to enjoy a swim and then accompany them to their home.

There is a new defibrillator, on the Portitxol beach to quickly address any cardiac crisis.

In addition to the security measures, the beaches of Xàbia also provide attractions, with parasols and play platforms on the Arenal, Grava and Granadella.
