Visitors to Playa de la Glea Beach at Campoamor, Orihuela Costa, can now benefit from public lockers to store their personal items. The initiative has been devised by the town hall in a bid to reduce incidents of theft and losses on local beaches, and use of the facilities costs just €5 per day. Each locker is equipped with an information screen, that displays the instructions in various languages.
Payment of the €5 fee may be made by credit card or in cash, and the locker will provide the user with a printed bar code, which can later be scanned to re-open it. The service also permits the user to obtain a Wi-fi code, providing them with a high speed network connection, also included in the price.
The project is expected to be extended to other beaches along the coast during the coming year.
