Tragic start to beach bathing season


Treacherous easterly winds have been making the sea extremely perilous for bathers, with two people rescued and four deaths along the Costa Blanca since Friday (May 31).

A Villajoyosa local police officer rescued a 58-year-old man who was in danger of drowning at Bol Nou beach.

The deaths have occurred at Cala Fustera in Benissa, Playa Arenal-Boll in Calpe, La Marina beach in Elche, and Cala Capitán in Orihuela.
