 	closed-beach-los-gigantesThe council’s plans for the repairs to Los Gigantes beach has been approved by the Ministry of the Environment

The beach has been closed to the public since November last year when two women were killed in a land slide. (see original story)

Funds are now available to start part one of the work needed. The first 75 metres of the cliff will be reinforced which will allow part of the beach to reopen.

A date to start work has not been agreed but according to the Mayor he hopes work will start in October and could take up to 5 months to complete. The project will cost 505,000 Euros,

The other 50m of the beach will be repaired to meet safety standards when funds become available.
