Arillas Beach Renovation 2014

Last Sunday 16 March 2014 was the second date we got together to clean up and take care of Arillas beach, after the Sunday before, 9 March. This time, just like last there were more than 60 people working, talking, eating, drinking, cleaning up, swimming, and generally having a great time! There was coffee and cookies, beer and pitakia, lots of smiles and a good spirit. The sun was shining and the kids were enjoying the spring weather.

In the meantime, we managed to fix the whole surface of the jetty with cement, support the jetty that was damaged after the winter storms, plant 10 three-meter tall “frigkes” (conifers like the ones growing on the left hand side of the beach), clean up lots of rubbish, and generally give the place a facelift it needed! And there’s more to come, we still have lots of time till the summer.

But the best part is not that we did all those things with a minimal amount of money, it’s the fact that we had a jolly good time doing them!  And it shows in the pics!

      Hi Sue! Now there are two ramps to the beach, one by the pier and one to the right side of the beach. And in the near future we plan to make Arillas as accessible as possible to people in wheelchairs.
