Siesta Show Webisode 63 - Save the Chiringuitos Campaign

We have teamed up with Costa Advice Bureau and the Resident Newspaper in order to help promote the plight of all the Chiringuitos along Andalucia. Chiringuitos (beach bars/ restaurants) have been a major part of Andalucian life for over 20 years yet the Spanish government wants to remove them from the beaches! Why? Because they are trying to apply the "ley de costas" retrospectively, a law that is over 20 years old, without realising what the ramifications would be.

What a shame it would be if they did remove them. We always visit our local one when we go over. Let's hope they see sense.

Surely they can't be serious? The Spanish government seems to have its head in the clouds at the moment, a bit like thinking there was no crisis when in actual fact there was. I'm sure this will get resolved.

I fully support your campaign, the chiringuitos are unique and essential to to the economy of Spain, they are a perfect opportunity to enjoy alfresco dining within an idyllic beachside setting and the best way to enjoy Spain's national dishes. Paella, Tapas, Sangria etc. They definately cannot be relocated. I read that the rules say these estasblishments cannot occupy more than 50 per cent of the beach they are on. Surely this is not the case as the chiringuitos occupy very little space, unless there are areas which are becoming inundated with structures I cannot see what the problem is with Spain's beach laws.
