Torrevieja’s beaches and waters will be safer as of tomorrow (Saturday June 20th) as the annual team of lifeguards and first-aiders swing into action.

Up to 75 lifeguards will be working during the July and September peak holiday period, with the patrols running until September 20th.

The service across the Orihuela Costa’s 11 beaches kicked in last Monday with up to 46 guards (pictured) providing 10 hour a day cover until September 25th.
