What is planned, outlined the councillor, is to “ensure quality in the beaches and give an extra push to the Costa Adeje destination as one where quality is vitally important, and with that in mind we have designed an ambitious plan where we will look at modernising existing infrastructures adapting them to meet the needs of today’s market”.

This plan will also include ensuring lifeguard services are in place as well as upgrading access to beaches including for those with mobility difficulties and renovating road and path signs and information panels along beach and bathing zones.

Andrés Pérez Ramos also said the council were working on a series of improvements to the Troya and Fañabe beaches including the creating of a sun-bathing zone for those with reduced mobility which will be alongside the adapted shower zone, as well as upgrading the existing passages to the sea shore which will make things easier for bathers and lifeguards in the case of emergencies”.

He also said that there would be proper cordoning off of water sport zones where motor and sail boats would need to observe the regulations, “increasing safety for bathers and ensuring a better working practise for beaches, bathing areas and marinas”. He has also said that the council will be looking at beach by-laws to ensure that there is proper and quality control of authorised beach activities throughout the year. The latter could see some changes in the current controls in operation to ensure the quality of the tourist destination is guaranteed.

The councillor also said that the issue of re-sanding the Fañabe and Enramada beaches and the issue of introducing sand on beaches that are currently mostly pebbled is under consideration and “a priority for his department” given the important part beaches play in the tourist offer of the destination”.
