Early morning yesterday trees were brought down by strong winds in Motril while in Almuñécar, Today, two palm trees were toppled as well.
Workers from the Almuñécar cleaning and maintenance company have been busy eliminating the shelf on Velilla beach, which was caused by recent spring gales.
Storms at the beginning of the month wiped out 20 metres of beach on Playa Granada, next to Hotel Robinson. Motril Town Hall is requesting funds from the Central Government to counter the problem.
The Almuñécar Town Hall sent the maintenance crews out to clear up the beaches of La Herradura and Almuñécar after the gales earlier in the week.
The gale-beaten beaches of Costa Tropical will have 100,000 euros spent on them to bring them up to scratch for the summer, says the Central Government through the Ministry for the Environment.
The Central Government, through its provincial Coastal Department (Costas) ,has begun improvement work on the slipway next to the Velilla breakwater in Almuñécar.
The high cost of sorting out the rapidly disappearing beach of Playa Granada, estimated at 15 million euros, probably means that it is not going to get sorted out this side of the Second Coming.
