The Blue Zones along Almuñécar’s and La Herradura’s seafront paseos were deactivated yesterday, the 1st of September.
However, that does not mean that all Blue Zones within the municipality are inoperative; the ones inside town along its main streets are still in use.
The areas where you will not longer have to pay to park until Semana Santa are: Paseo Puerta del Mar and Paseo Velilla, Playa Tesorillo, Playa El Pozuelo, Avenida Adolfo Suárez (Galera Playa), Plaza de Abderramán, Paseo de Las Flores, PaseoSan Cristóbal , Paseo Rincón de la China and Paseo Cotobro, as far as Edificio Los Ramos.
Blue Zone (8): Avenida Mar de Plata, Calle Pirámide and Avenida Amelia Sánchez de Alcázar, from the Calle Mar de Plata junction as far as the Calle Pirámide one, are also deactivated.
As far as La Herradura, along the Paseo Andrés Segovia from the Mercado Municipal as far as the junction with Calle Alhambra and Calle Gonzalo Barbero no longer requires paid parking until Semana Santa.
The Blue Zones were introduced in the municipality to favour greater mobility and to stop people parking up, throwing a plastic cover over the car and leaving it for a month. The fact is that nobody can afford that sort of holiday duration anymore since the economic crisis of 2008, but the Town Hall doesn’t seem to have noticed…
