Residents of Attica are expected to look for a beach to relax this weekend. Free beaches have already started to become a pole of attraction, organized beaches are opening today and both types are expected to be filled with bathers.
The goal of everyone, in a free and organized manner, is to comply with the prescribed security measures. For this reason, the coastal municipalities of Attica have already completed a number of works required in this case last week.
“Our beaches are free to enter, they are safe and free. This is our message, “Glyfada Mayor Georgios Papanikolaou told APE-MPE News Agency, continuing:” Every year our beaches are full of people enjoying the sea and the beauty of nature. The entire infrastructure was prepared a few days before the opening. We placed the umbrellas at a distance of 10 meters from each other, that is, even further than planned, so that we can be sure that the distances will be respected without stress and irritation. There are toilets, changing rooms, showers, and we have already updated the sand. Also in the coastal area there are three or four restaurants that have been open since last Monday, with all the required health protection measures. “
For his part, the mayor of Vari-Voula-Vouliagmeni, Grigoris Constdellos, emphasizes to APE-MPE: “For ten days now everything is ready, and the public welcomes it. Cleaning is done, umbrellas are installed, toilets, changing rooms, showers are everywhere. Of course, the rescuers also took their places. “
As you know, this municipality has the largest coastline in Attica. “There is 6.5 km of free beach,” says Mr. Condellos and adds, “There is daily cleaning and there are trash cans everywhere. In addition, for the second year, we are implementing a program in cooperation with the Technical University to provide our guests with electricity from solar panels (to charge mobile phones or iPads). We applied this system for the first time last year and continue this year. “
