Breaking down Barriers

The beaches of Puerto San Miguel and Benirr

The beaches of Puerto San Miguel and Benirràs have been protected against possible sand erosion this winter by cane barriers erected by the coastal authorities.

In the last few years when the island has experienced some unusually bad weather and violent storms, these two beaches have lost so much of their sand, that the natural replacement which occurs in summer did not make up the shortfall.

Happily, the two fences which run the length of the beaches like 'bamboo curtains' have been a complete success and have now been removed so that visitors can now enjoy all the facilities again.
