Closure of swimming pools? A solution!

The lingering drought in Andalucia, a region renowned for its picturesque landscapes and abundant sunshine, has cast a shadow over the idyllic summer plans of many residents and tourists alike. As the region grapples with the consequences of prolonged dry spells, the potential closure of swimming pools in Manilva and along the Costa del Sol has become a stark reality.

The Costa del Sol, a beloved stretch of coastline known for its pristine beaches and vibrant tourism industry, is facing an unprecedented challenge. The lack of rainfall has severely impacted water reservoirs, forcing local authorities to consider drastic measures to conserve precious water resources. Private and community swimming pools, once a staple of the region’s luxurious lifestyle now find themselves in jeopardy. However, it’s important to note that hotels and other businesses that heavily rely on water usage will not be affected by these measures.

While the municipality of Estepona has taken proactive steps by upgrading its desalination plant, ensuring a steady supply of water, neighbouring towns like Manilva and Casares are bracing for potential pool closures. Local councils in these areas are expected to inform residents and business owners in the coming weeks about the necessary measures to be taken if any.

The looming closures have sparked concerns among residents and business owners alike. For many, swimming pools are not just a luxurious amenity but an integral part of their daily routines, providing respite from the scorching summer heat. The potential loss of this recreational facility could have far-reaching consequences, affecting the quality of life and tourism appeal of the region.

Whilst we await the councils decision on whether pools are open or closed for this summer, here are a few alternative ideas.
