Capacity control and surveillance on Tenerife’s beaches during Holy Week | Radio Club Tenerife

With the island of Tenerife in alert level 3 for coronavirus, and the arrival of Easter, the island’s municipalities have decided to take a series of measures in order to avoid crowds in bathing areas.

The Realejos

The Tenerife municipality will maintain the capacity at the El Socorro beach (204 people), as explained by the Councilor for Playas de Los Realejos, Domingo García. It will be the lifeguards who will control access to the bathing area and who remember that “more than 4 people in a group may not go to the beaches, always wearing a mask and maintaining a safe distance.”

The rosary

Sara Cabello, Councilor for Finance, Security, Equality and Human Resources and First Deputy Mayor of El Rosario, recalls that there is already a “planned security device”, especially because the coast of La Nea, Radazul and Tabaiba are areas of maximum influx, with about 5,000 people on a normal summer day.

And with these figures, El Rosario wants to maintain a total capacity of 630 people in total for the days of Holy Week.

Cross port

The tourist city has, only in Playa Jardín, with up to 14 entrances to the bathing area. Therefore, according to the mayor, Marco González, they will resume these days a measure already used in summer; “an information campaign, throughout the beach, through the students of the job alternation plans”. A measure that will be complemented with the surveillance work of the lifeguards and the local police, and “without the need to make a prior appointment since we allude to the responsibility of each one,” adds González.


The mayor, José Heriberto González, confirms on Radio Club Tenerife that the northern municipality hopes to open the natural pools of El Caletón these days, “always depending on the weather.” And if the opening is favorable “we will have vigilance,” adds González. Meanwhile, on the pier beach there is no capacity and no prior appointment is required.

The lagoon

Although the city of Aguere will not apply the appointment system for the next few days, it will use “the count”, as explained by the Councilor for Beaches and Pools, Cristina Ledesma. However, the bathing areas of La Laguna will have a clear capacity: Punta del Hidalgo (60 people), Jover (70 people), Bajamar (159 people) and Bajamar beach (170 people).
