The Community has launched a free shuttle service that will connect the new parking lot at the entrance to the Regional Park of Las Salinas, with the beaches of La Llana and Torre Derribada.

The general director of the Natural Environment, explains that «with this measure we intend to reduce the number of vehicles that every day access the beaches crossing the Parque Regional de las Salinas and Arenales San Pedro del Pinatar, thus reducing the damages that can be cause the flora and fauna of this environment.

The minibus, which is already in operation, has a frequency of half an hour, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., every day of the week and will be in operation until the beginning of September.

It is important to highlight that the noise from massive traffic and parking outside the designated areas causes direct and indirect damage to the flora and fauna of this protected natural space. Specifically, factors such as excessive noise, trampling flora, increased waste and nuisance to protected fauna, among other damages. In addition, the location of vehicles outside the authorized areas prevents the correct work of fire fighting services or health emergencies.
