    Verdemar reports the loss of sand and the deterioration of Guadalquitón beach

    Verdemar-Ecologists have denounced to the Coastal Demarcation the state of the Guadalquitón beach next to Bunker Beach Chiringuito with the “permanent” loss of sand, which affects the entire coastline in the area.

    In a written statement, they say that it is the most eroded beach in Andalusia and one of the most eroded on the entire Spanish coastline. They point out that they have already warned that from the port of Sotogrande to the beach of Guadalquitón there is hardly any sand, and that some homes have had to be protected with breakwaters and storms enter directly into the Octagon Beach Club, in the homes of Los Lacasitos, Club del Trocadero and part of the Sotogrande sewage treatment plant.

    In addition, according to Verdemar-Ecologists, the natural area of the Guadiaro River is suffering an unprecedented deterioration, which is not only causing a loss of coastline, but is having tremendous social consequences.

    The ecologists have explained that every year, after the storms of Levante, the beach of Sotogrande loses sand and the beach of Guadalquitón, in the Natural Park of Los Alcornocales, is also suffering a “considerable decline”. “The situation has worsened with every protective breakwater that was installed,” said Verdemar, who added that the shrinking of the beach is affecting protected endemic species.

    Finally, Verdemar-Ecologists in Action asks Costas for a list of existing reports and complaints about the “non-compliance on the performance on the coastline from the Port of Sotogrande to arroyo Guadalquitón, and how this problem will be solved”.
