Anyone who reads my blogs will know I love the Sur in English. The Sur is a free newspaper for Andalucia. If you have read the paper you will know it is a goldmine of information.
Originally, the date set for opening up was 1st July 2020, but, Pedro Sanchez, the Spanish PM, changed his mind and called for the 21st of June. This has come as a great relief to businesses up and down the Costa del Sol, including Nerja.
However; (there is always “however”, the president of the Costa del Sol Tourism Authority, Francisco Saldo, has asked for clarification. It was proposed that people on flights from the UK would need to quarantine (mostly due to the late imposition of lockdown and high infections and mortality rates in the UK). Also, the UK government has a Covid-19 policy in place that requires visitors from overseas to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival.
Foreign Minister Arancha González Laya has stressed that there has to be reciprocity in arrangements when travel between the two countries is allowed from Sunday
So, the rest of the EU countries will be fine to fly into Malaga and have a holiday on the Costa del Sol, Nerja included. The British tourists will have to wait until the political squabbling is resolved.

Other Stories from the Costa del Sol – Andalucia to have the safest beaches in the country this summer, according to the Junta de Andalucia
Again, another great story from the Sur in English. Official met in Marbella to discuss plans to employ 3000 workers as beach monitors. These monitors will patrol the Andalucia coastline, including the Costa del Sol and Nerja.
The millions made available will go into ensuring the health and safety precautions, set out by the government, are respected. Specialist equipment, such as quad bikes, jet skis, surveillance towers and boats will all go to keeping things safe for all users.
