This week the Consistory’s Beach Management Body met to discuss how the high season is developing this summer 2022


The Mijas First Deputy Mayor and Councillor for Beaches, José Carlos Martín (Cs), chaired a new meeting of the beach management body of the Town Council this week. They consiered how the high season is developing on the Mijas coastline during the 2022 summer. According to Martín, “all the departments involved in the Mijas coastline remain vigilant to maintain the quality of our beaches”.

A vigilance that the Beaches Department carries out through “a transversal coordination with other areas of the Council” and,  thus, “with the efforts of all, we get the Mijas coast to be one of the top sun and beach destinations in southern Spain,” recalled Martin. Therefore this meeting was attended by the local areas responsible for maintenance, cleaning, and safety of the Mijas coastline, professionals in the sector, and the head of the audit of OCA Global.

The Councillor recalled an audit was carried out by OCA Global last April. “It certified the quality of our beaches and the services we provide to renew all our quality  certifications”, a study with which “there was no disagreement with the issues addressed, so they did not put any objection”. Other points discussed during the meeting were the Local Police incident statistics, Rescue, and Life-guard actions. A review of the suggestions on the beach water use, a criteria study to consider in terms of sustainability in a drought scenario, the three smoke-free beaches’ management, and improvements’ review on the beaches for the rest of the season taking into account the incidents reported. This is why Martín pointed out that “the water and sand cleanliness, the environmental surroundings, the native fauna, and flora, and the services and accessibility provided are vital in this complex summer in which we are having a large affluence of public thanks to the great quality of our beaches”. For the Councillor, these points are essential to  monitoring as “ the quality and care of the beaches is essential now more than ever in such a competitive tourist market”.

He added that “the Department will continue to work to preserve the quality marks it has achieved, while at the same time striving to achieve new elements that certify our excellence”.
