Some bars are either finding it very difficult to reopen, keeping to the present restrictions or simply can’t be bothered to follow them. Readers out and about in their own towns will probably have witnessed such occurrences.
Last Saturday the Policía Local had to move in and close a bar down on one of its beaches because there were far too many people using the outside terrace seating.
In fact, the police handed out around ten fines that morning to people who had brought beach umbrellas down to the beach to spend the morning there, even though swimming and sunbathing on beaches under Phase One are not permitted.
The Mayor, Luisa García Chamorro, appealed to the townsfolk through her Facebook account to toe the line.
But Motril was not alone in this sense because their neighbours over in Salobreña had also knocked up a similar amount of fines for precisely the same reason.
