Mayor Monserrate Guillén has responded to the opposition Popular Party, which had criticised there still being seaweed on the beaches as summer is about to begin. The Green Party mayor explained the conservation of the algae on the shore is fundamental to protect the sand and so is kept there all year round and only removed in the high season when the beaches are full of people.
He said it is one of the conditions demanded by the organisation that awards the Blue Flags that once the seaweed is deposited on the beach, it is left to dry to preserve the good condition of the coast. Guillén assured that when the PP had been in power and the seaweed was collected all year round, they had to put new sand on the beaches at the start of each season, while now with this natural process of drying the seaweed there is no need to replace the sand.
