COUNCIL ISSUES REMINDER THAT FIRES ARE PROHIBITED ON BEACHES

javeamigos.com | COUNCIL REMINDS THAT FIRES ARE PROHIBITED ON BEACHES

Xàbia Town Council has issued a reminder to residents and visitors that the building of open fires is strictly prohibited on the all of the municipality's beaches and coves as well as the use of barbecues, portable gas cookers and anything else that creates fire. The cancellation of the Fogueres de Sant Joan has also prompted the Council to step up its security of the beaches on the night of June 23rd to prevent fires being lit as people look for alternatives to celebrate on this special night.

Article 147 of the municipal by-laws on co-existence and security regulates activities that are not allowed in coastal areas, including bonfires and any activity that pollutes the coast with food remains, glass containers, aluminium or iron, cigarette butts and flammable material and rubbish bags amongst others and confirms that those who don't conform with the regulations can be liable to a fine up to 750 euros.

In Xàbia, the lighting bonfires on the beach on the night of Sant Joan has never been a tradition since the main activity on this magical night is up in the historic centre where the iconic Night of the Fires marks the penultimate night of the fabulous Fogueres de Sant Joan, a special event that attracts some 20,000 people every year. However, the suspension of the biggest party of the year due to the COVID-19 health crisis has meant that the Council will be required to step up surveillance of the beaches as people look to move the action to the beach, imitating the traditions of other Mediterranean regions. However, these customs have also been affected by the health crisis. In Dénia,  the Council has already moved to close the beaches and totally prohibit access to them from 21:00 on the night of June 23rd until 07:00 the following morning. The city of Valencia is doing the same whilst further up the coast in Catalonia, Barcelona is also closing its beaches over the same night.

However, the Council also wants to confirm that it is perfectly acceptable for people to have picnics on the beaches so long as there are no fires or  barbecues and that the natural environment is respected at all times including the removal of all rubbish so that the activity does not leave any trace. In addition, the current situation requires that the preventative measures recommended by the health authorities are followed in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

El Ayuntamiento de Xàbia recuerda que está totalmente prohibido hacer fuego en las playas y calas, así como usar barbacoas, anafes, bombonas de gas u otros utensilios para hacer fuego.

Asimismo, avanza que el municipio activará un dispositivo especial de seguridad la noche del 23 de junio para hacer cumplir la ordenanza municipal de convivencia y seguridad, especialmente su artículo 147 que regula las actuaciones no permitidas en zonas costeras (desde las fogatas a cualquier acto que ensucie estos espacios con restos de comida, envases de vidrio, aluminio o hierro, colillas y materiales en combustión, bolsas de basura, etc) y que están sancionadas hasta con 750 euros.

En la población, la celebración de la noche de Sant Joan en las playas no tiene prácticamente arraigo al coincidir con uno de los actos más emblemáticos y multitudinarios de les Fogueres (la Nit dels Focs). No obstante, el Ayuntamiento anuncia esta vigilancia especial en previsión de que este año, al no celebrarse esta fiesta por la crisis de la Covid19, haya personas que esa noche quieran trasladar la fiesta a la playa imitando costumbres de otras zonas mediterráneas.

En este sentido, desde el Consistorio se aclara que sí está permitido cenar en las playas del municipio, pero sin fuegos ni pirotécnica, y siempre respetando el entorno natural (sin dejar restos de basura) y guardando las medidas preventivas para evitar la propagación del coronavirus.
