Hi Cath, they seem to be very efficient this year. Most of the beach has been cleaned , a lot of umbrellas are already up and i have even seen a few beds stacked up by the wall.
I wonder how much they will be charging this year, have not seen any signs yet .

I think it goes up about a euro a year to hire two beds and a shade it was €11 last year so hopefully will only go up to €12 this year

Thanks everyone...we are at "La Gola" end of the beach and I know it may vary when they are put out ..i am keeping fingers crossed for weather and beach beds.
€12 will not be too bad....(well at least it will be cheaper than the chiropractor fees I would need to pay if I had to resort to laying on the sand )

I know 1 euro doesn't seem a great increase but remember, last year it was about 1.25 to the pound. The increase is actually from about £8.80 to £12 this is a whopping 50% increase!!.

I think a lot of people will be looking a buying a cheap set of sun beds while they are away or using the hotel/apartment ones which are usually free.

How heartening to hear that the prices for two beds and an umbrella remain at 11 euros!
Every little helps.....

Has anyone ever heard of being able to hire them for a week or even a fortnight at a reduced rate.
11 Euros is a sizeable wad especially if you are on the the beach every day....and yes I'm Scottish.

Sorry but no, years ago you could hire for half a day but now it just a daily charge.
