Motril Beach Parking

Parking and Summer are two words that hate each other but are married without the possibility of divorce… Man, is that deep or what!

In the case of Motril, it’s Playa de Poniente and Playa Granada, but the Town Hall is working on a provisional solution: they have been holding talks with landowners with plots near these areas to convert them into temporary, summer-parking areas.

It is a sign of the “tight” times, however, that these parking areas will only be available during the weekends. We say, “a sign of the times” because in the good old days, every day in July and August were weekends; i.e., there the coast was packed from Monday through to Sunday every week – now it’s only the weekends.

The Mayor of Motril, Luisa García Chamorro, explained that they have been clearing the land, which is situated between the two popular beaches, with strimmers etc to provide 7,500 sq/m of parking area.

Something had to be done, of course, because drivers could only park on the side of the road, restricting the flow of traffic as effectively as cholesterol (another ‘deep’ moment).

Now, unlike Almuñécar, which provides extra parking in the P-4, this parking space for up to 300 vehicles will be free of charge. Take note, Almuñécar.
