Tourists in Sardinia’s popular beaches will soon have to pay tickets

Published on : Friday, November 15, 2019

Tourists heading to one of the most popular beaches in Sardinia will have to provide cash in order to enter this famous white sand coastline anytime soon. Would you pay for a ticket?

 

White sands and crystal clear waters are the key attractions for one of the most famous beaches in Sardinia. Nevertheless, guests anticipating to use the beach will have to pay for tickets soon. La Pelosa beach, located in the town of Stintino on the Sardinian coast, is all prepared to initiate a ticketing system, along with capping visitor numbers to the beach at 1,500 per day. It is expected that the new rule will bring a slash on overcrowding.

 

At present, authorities are anxious that its popularity is creating a major threat to the beach and its natural ecosystem.

 

Although the exact cost of each ticket has to be disclosed yet, the Mayor of Stintino considers that the new system will assist in preserving the natural beauty of the area.

 

All prepared to come into practice from 2020, beachgoers will also have to face fines of 5,000 euros (£4,522) if they make a decision to take sand, pebbles or shells from the beach as souvenirs.

 

In the meantime, there is by now a rule has been imposed of banning visitors from accompanying beach towels or beach bags to La Pelosa to prevent sand, either by chance or deliberately, being taken from the area.

 

Antonio Diana, the mayor of Stintino, informed in a council meeting on Monday that steps would be imposed on a trial basis to begin with.

 

If the trial works out, it is probably the rule will become a permanent fixture.

 

Diana said: The money collected from the fee would help to pay for the beach’s supervision and maintenance,”

 

According to local newspaper Sassari Oggi, councillor for tourism Francesca Demontis, added: “The ticket will allow us to cover the expenses for Pelosa and distribute the proceeds also for the maintenance and cleaning of the other beaches.”

 

“I am convinced that we can achieve a good result.”
