These are some of the questions being asked with their corresponding answers from the Almuñécar Policía Local. Note: some might appear contradictory… that is because they are.
Q: Can I go for a ride or drive in the mountains?
A: Yes, in Phase One, you can drive around the province
Q: Can I go hiking in the mountains around my town?
A: No, walking is only allowed up to one kilometre from home and jogging is restricted to your municipality.
Q: Can I go to the beach?
A: Yes, but only for a walk; not for swimming.
Q: What is the timetable for walking and jogging?
A: Until the Junta says otherwise, they are the same as in Phase Zero.
Q: Can I get together with my friends in a square and spend the afternoon there?
A: No, the outing times for walks and jogging don’t permit you to remain in one place.
Q: Can I practice sports outside my municipality?
A: No, the restrictions on where you practice sports have not changed.
Q: Can both parents go out with the kids when its their turn?
A: No, the restrictions have not changed in that respect.
Q: Are the ITV stations open?
A: Yes, you can now take your vehicle for checking, always with a prior appointment.
So, there you have it! You can jump in the car with your kids and spouse but you can’t go out walking together. You can, however, sit with them on a bar terrace altogether.
You can drive out into the mountains but you can’t park up and go for a walk whilst you’re there.
What time you go for your walk or take your kids out for fresh air is restricted, but you can go to a bar or restaurant any time you want, as long as they are open.
If in doubt, visit the Almuñécar Policía Local facebook page for more info, but beware those of you who live in Salobreña or Motril… the police there might have a different interpretation of the BOE.
