Benidorm City Council, with the support of the Valencian Tourism Agency (AVT) and the concessionary company of beaches -RA Benidorm-, has improved the accessible point of Levante beach and has practically doubled its surface area. The councilor of Beaches, Lorenzo Martínez, has visited today these facilities totally reformed and that are open eleven months a year.

Martínez explained that "given the large influx of people who use the facilities of the point of accessible on Levante beach it was essential to expand the shadow area", which has been practically doubled. In addition, "the structure of the accessible point and all the awnings" has been renewed, while "the entire walkway area with the installation of concrete sheets" has been improved. It is the same sheets that "were already placed last year at the point of Elche Park.

This action has involved an investment that "exceeds 40,000 euros." Of them, "a part is paid by the concessionaire of the beaches, and another by the own Council and the AVT, which has contributed a little more than 9,300 euros through its Program of investment in adaptation and improvement of services and tourism resources.

The councilor stressed that after this improvement "we will try to certify this point as Universal Accessibility" as it was done last year with Elche Park; and has insisted that the "commitment of this government was and continues to be to improve these facilities so that people with disabilities can enjoy the beaches."

Benidorm has three points of accessible beaches open eleven months a year on Levante, at the junction of the avenues Europe and Alcoy; in Elche Park; and in La Cala, in front of Delfin hotel. In 2016 these three points served a total of 19,584 users, more than half of them on Levante.
