"Those early risers that claim a place on the beach by sticking a beach umbrella in their desired spot and then going away until later are being fined at a Granada resort. The Ayuntamiento of Almunecar has set fines of €36 for this offence which they intend to pursue rigorously this summer."
In times past, used to love being on the Mar Menuda early and always on the edge of the beach or rock pool. When we were leaving about 11 am, people were almost shoving us aside to claim our " best place on the beach" As we lifted our towels others were placing theirs in situ.
And what about the people who park near flag-poles Maybe the council could start start charging for trolleys going down on the beach also. They could make a fortune in Tossa, as nearly all of us seem to use one nowadays
