The Ayuntamiento de Xàbia has asked the regional government to re-open the public ramp in the port

Just as the summer season begins to kick in, the Ayuntamiento de Xàbia has decided to close the launching ramp in the Cala de la Granadella due to safety concerns after a notable increase in traffic wanting to use it. The closure will run from Friday 10th July until mid-October and signs advising of such are to be located on the beach, at the junction between Carretera de la Guardia and Carretera de la Granadella and at the start of the ravine.

The Department of Services explained that staff charged with monitoring and lifesaving at the beach had reported problems that were being generated in the cove as well as the access to the beach by an increase in vehicles with boat trailers who have been wanting to use the small ramp after the privatization of the Canal de la Fontana where a fee is now charged for the launching of boats.

As a result, the access point to the sea, which was created by sailors from Xàbia and Poble Nou de Benitatxell to launch their traditional fishing boats and until recently had only been used by lifeguard launches and local residents, has been overwhelmed and the situation has led to the Ayuntamiento to temporarily close the ramp to avoid problems, especially avoiding issues in the possible event of an emergency launch for a rescue in response to an accident or catastrophe.

At the same time, the Ayuntamiento is looking for an alternative location for the launching of small boats into the sea and councillor Doris Courcelles (Beaches) has presented a request to the Conselleria de Infraestructuras in Valencia to re-open the public ramp in the Port de Xàbia. At the time of writing, she is still waiting for a response.
