Default On the beach 2018 (Beds and brollies).

Winter must be over, the guys are very busy on the beach. The wind breaks have been taken down and the machine is leveling and cleaning the sand .

Judging by the weather forecast, they'll be disappearing again pretty quickly again, seeing as a big storm with high winds is arriving on Saturday.....just in time for our visit!

Yes, I can see the umbrella poles are currently being put on the beach via the webcam. At least it hasn’t been left as late as it was a couple of years ago!

Great to see the poles going up.
Would be interesting to see the cost this year. I think last year it was 13 euros for two beds and an umbrella. Hopefully it would not have gone up again.

I think last year it was 15€ on the main beach and 22€ along the Pine Walk.

Default Sunbeds and Brollies

So,

Can anyone tell me the terrific value prices for sunbeds and brollies this year, both on and Pinewalk beaches?

If I remember correctly from last year, 2 loungers and one sunshade:
Tamarell's beach - E16
Pine Walk beach - E22
Both vastly increased on previous years, but you do need shade!
Many folks have taken to providing their own. Pine Walk beach sunshade/loungers
set-out is much more 'crowded' than in previous years - (brings in more EEEE....s !!!)

OK

My mistake - I had assumed that the white sign (???) on the pole was the Tariff.

Anyway, this also implies that their contract for charging does not apply until 1st May, or sometime around then.

Look forward to seeing the actual charge when anyone knows it.

I may be wrong, but the 'white sign' that you mention:
I think it may be a small safe for keys, etc., that you can pay for separately?
Not 100% sure.

Yes, OK. Got that wrong too.

But a very good idea.
