Jet-Ski Restrictions

In July of last year, after a meeting between Councilor Francisco Fernández and members of the Amigos del Mar, a motion was registered at the Town hall with the following points:

ALM Beach Rules Notice Board* Limit access to private jet skis in all municipally owned boat slipways, setting a schedule from 09.00h to 13.00h and creating a fee for this purpose.

* Respect existing jet-ski rental facilities without allowing new facilities or expansion of existing ones, unless it is with silent ones

* Eliminate all mention of jet skis in advertising withinTown Council and Municipal Tourist Board literature.

* Instruct the Policia Local to periodically monitor the noise level, as is done in other types of recreational activities

* Urge the relevant authorities to increase surveillance on our coasts

Unida Para la Gente is pleased to report that some of these points have been approved, especially the limited times that jet-skis can operate, which both residents and Amigos del Mar had said were sorely needed.

This political group expressed its thanks to friends of Amigos del Mar for their efforts to improve this situation.

They also thanked the Town Council for taking onboard some of the points, and they hope that all of the points will be implemented and imposed throughout this summer, so that relative peace on beaches and for those that live nearby can be possible.

    From my view between Salobreña and Almuñecar They ‘complement’ the road bikes by turning the water into another race track. Infernal machines. No Dolphins when they are about except once a few years ago I witnessed three miscreants trying to herd a small pod for about 5 minutes before zooming off. No chance of tracing them.

    Would this include the twits that zoom around Salobrena/La Guardia, mostly from the end of workdays or weekends?

    Size of car = ?
    Size of Bike = ?
    Size and noise of Jetski = ?

    Inversely proportional to brain and consideration!
