blarer,

Exactly how many tragedies have you witnessed at Los Guios and Playa de la Arena? And how many lives were lost when helicopters failed to rescue people swept from the beaches? I think you folks are confusing the beaches with the treacherous natural pool at Crab Island.The lifeguards are currently saving lives by prohibiting folks from wandering around the exposed rocks on Playa de la Arena. These rocks,by the way, are at least 30 feet from the sea. What makes you imagine that these experts are anymore competent than the local police or the safety experts who paint Zebra crossings right in front of bus stops so people need to peek around the buses before crossing the street?

Cartman, I have spent many many hours at Arena.  I have witnessed the lifeguards whistling and saving peoples lives.  I have witnessed people ignoring the whistles and being washed out to sea, with the consequence of a helicopter being brought in to try and save a life, to no avail.  You ignore them if you wish, but I certainly respect their authority and knowledge, and thank goodness they are there and keep the beaches and people safe, the clever ones, that choose to listen to their advice.

I assume you've never been caught in the undertow at those beaches. Ignore the life guards and their professional skills at your peril. Seen enough tragedies at those beaches through people who know better and ignore the warnings.

 magsnmike,
 
Your acquiescence to to silly authoritarians is amusing. What appears to be "ankle deep" is ACTUALLY ankle deep. You are correct. The local lifeguards are amazing. In over 50 years of visiting beaches ,the local lifeguards are are the only ones I have ever seen who never seem to get wet. I suggest you spend a few hours at Playa de La arena and watch them wear out their lungs blowing their whistles.My goodness, they harass people sitting on the rocks in calm seas at low tide.

The lifeguards are amazing and probably save so many lives.  What appears to be ankle deep to us mere mortals to the lifeguards they can read the tides and know when someone is in danger.  I would never question their decisions if asked to leave the water.

Dolly,
I think you will find that there is a lifeguard on duty who will blow his whistle every time there is a 6 inch wave. The lifeguards in Los Gigantes and Playa de La Arena have to be the most fearful lifeguards on the planet. I have seen them rudely chasing people out of ankle deep water.

Los Gigantes beach is open.  Like all other beaches the orange or red flag will only be displayed when the sea is rough and it is dangerous to swim.  Most of the time a green flag is displayed and it is ok to go in the water.  There will be a life guard on duty to advise people.

At the time of writing the above the beach was open.  However, the beach did close this week for the planned work.  Sorry, but I do not know how long the work is expected to take but I will post news of the progress.

Hi Guys,

I have visited Los Gigantes this time last May, and unfortunately marina beach was closed.

I am planning to come to LG again in next few weeks potentially, and I really liked the marina beach.

Is it re-open for public and swimming?

I have found some information on tripadvisor, but there was only few people that commented in last few months saying it's always red-orange flagged and is not for swimming?
