Updated 24 January: Granadilla Ayuntamiento says that the results of analysis show that the sea at El Médano beach are fine for bathing at registering an E-Coli index of  10 ufc/100ml, within permitted limits. The council has therefore lifted the beach’s closure. The council is continuing to monitor the situation and check the water quality.

Original post 22 January: Granadilla Ayuntamiento has announced that El Médano beach has been closed while investigations are carried out into a sewage spill.

The beach will remain closed until at least the first results of the analysis which are being carried out today by public health inspectors.
