I was having a discussion with friends recently about when the Almerimar beaches officially open for the summer. By opening I mean when the lifeguards go on duty, when the toilets are in place, when the disabled access to the beach and the sea is available to use etc.

Someone told me that this year the date is 16 June. They also said that in the past they thought that the beaches were "open" from 1 June 2016.

I have to admit that I do not really know the answer to the question whether the opening has been delayed this year. I have had a quick poke around on the internet and not found any information. If I get a chance I might pop in to the tourist office and ask Gabriel about it.
