Benidorm enables bathing and walks along the shore from 7am - 8:45am and extends the capacity of its beaches to 33,000 people.

The Mayor of Benidorm, Toni Pérez, has today issued a statement that includes "the new modulation of the beaches", once the state of alarm has ended and in accordance with the latest health, hygiene and safety recommendations. In summary, this modulation allows the maximum capacity of the beaches to be expanded and authorises practices hitherto restricted by state regulations, such as walks along the shore or practicing sports in authorised areas. In addition, a new bathing schedule and walks are enabled; the number of people accessing the beaches increases; and a new distribution of the hammock, elderly and general public spaces is established. He said this "extends the capacity to more than 33,000 people", with a maximum occupancy of 27,852 users in the free zone and 5,624 in the hammock spaces.

According to the mayor, among the changes introduced this also includes "occasional walks and swimming from 7am to 8:45am", maintaining the general hours of the beaches from 9am - 9pm. In the new special schedule for baths and walks, the beaches must be accessed through the authorised entry and exit points, not you are not allowed to stay on the sand.

Toni Pérez reported that "starting today, you will be able to walk along the 6-meter strip between the shore, always keeping the safety distance of 1.5 meters, the use of a mask being mandatory, according to the decree dictated by the Government of Spain on 9th June 9 ”. In this 6-meter strip, only children under 10 years of age will be allowed to stay.

Also "sports practice is authorised in the areas enabled permanently for beach volleyball and football." However, and as established by state regulations, the prohibition of all types of games outside these spaces remains, and the biblioplaya, the children's playgrounds, biohealth and kalestenia will continue to be closed.
