If anybody thought that the police would no longer set up controls on junctions on the autovía exits down on the coast, they were mistaken.
The difference is that the Guardia Civil this time are checking to see if people are attempting inter-provincial travel.
Under Phase One, for example, 2nd-home owners from Granada can take up residency on the coast, but not those from Madrid or even Jaén.
What the officers manning these controls have found is that, effectively, many people from the city of Granada and its satellite towns have travelled down the A-7, coming off either at La Herradura, Taramay (Almuñécar) Lobres (Salobreña) or heading down the old N-323 to the N-340 junction.
Not being able to swim in the sea or lie on the beach does not seem to have deterred many people from inland Granada, visiting or coming to stay on the Costa Tropical.
