The event which was held on Burriana Beach was attended by a representative of the Andalusian Government, the mayor of Nerja, the councillor for Beaches, lifeguards and members of Civil Protection.
Speaking on behalf of the Andalusian Government, Patricia Navarro, stated that “we are at a crucial moment in the recovery of normality, so we must remain vigilant when it comes to complying with the rules responsibly, in the use of masks, keeping the safety distance, respecting the capacity and extreme hygiene.”
