Sand from old dune used to cover area damaged by storms

Guardamar del Segura Town Hall is using over 3,000 cubic metres of sand to regenerate the beaches.

Councillor Ana Martínez said they have started at two places on Avenida Ingeniero Codorniu by Babilonia beach.

The sand is from an old dune by Roqueta beach. About 600m3 of it has been tipped into a hole bigger than 1,000m2 that was created by storms and destroyed part of the road.

Different species of plants will also be planted to regenerate the coast.

Despite the work part of Babilonia beach will continue to be closed because pieces of the damaged houses that are buried in the sand could be dangerous.

They are also replacing sand to the south by the Miramar restaurant.
