Pre booking tables at restaurants has been a mandatory thing post covid. But this social distancing compulsion doesn’t just end here. Looks like you will have to book your spot on beach before heading to the sea. Authorities in several European countries are planning one step ahead.
They are creating sunbathing ‘squares’ to maintain social distancing norms after the lock down ends. This might exactly be the trend post-Covid, which is now being adopted in Spain. And most likely, other countries will also follow the same sooner.
Canet d’en Berenguer, located just north of Valencia, will be allowing only 500 beachgoers a day. This is around half the number of visitors that visit the spot every day. And, to sunbathe, one must reserve any available space beforehand via a mobile app. All this in order to ensure no one flouts the social distancing norms.
This summer will be different. It will be more like a business-class beach, said the city mayor. Looks like grid pattern will be used to divide the beach into square sections. Each grid will be separated by 6 ft.
Further, one can book only one sunbathing session per day. Which means you can’t lie down all day long. The Mayor also stated that sunbathers can book any available space, much like booking online tickets for movies. The arrival times will also remain staggered to avoid gathering. Hence plan if you want to hit the beach during sunrise or sunset and enjoy the new holiday norms. Also, book your beach spots along with those air tickets.
