While at golf today I was chatting to a few people about parking in the marina area of town. Apparently the yellow lines in various parts of town have been repainted. Also, cars are being given parking fines if you park on the yellow line areas. Apparently they are pretty strict about it. Even if only a small part of you car is over the yellow lines they are still handing out parking tickets.

So be careful where you park. You have been warned.

PS If you do get a parking fine be sure to pay it off quickly. One of the people I was chatting to got a 200 euro fine recently. She then only had to pay 40 euros as she paid quickly. She also said that you can pay in the town hall office in Almerimar. I think it is only certain days. If I remember rightly I think she said on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
