bathing facilities

Seaside tourism is one of the major pillars of our economy and, as such, is called upon to guarantee ever higher quality standards.

For this reason, bathing establishments are required to respond to social and environmental needs with an eye to the safety of consumers who access their facilities every year.


Stop the extension of beach concessions

According to the sentence of the Council of State, the current beach concessions will be considered valid until 31 December 2023. Starting from 2024, the state concessions will be recognized and assigned through participation in tenders, in which the current concessionaires will also be able to participate.

The tenders will have to consider the investments, the corporate value of the company and the tangible and intangible assets, the professionalism acquired in the sector (minimum 5 years of management of the establishment object of the tender), as well as the enhancement of social policy objectives, health and workers’ safety, environmental protection and cultural heritage preservation.
