Initially, the closure affected the El Cabezo A area, known as “L”, but the evolution of the spill has forced the measure to be extended to the entire coastline.

The security protocol has been activated, through the 112 room, and Salvamento Marítimo intervenes, which has mobilized Salvamar Tenerife, according to sources from the public entity have transferred to Efe.

At the moment the origin of the spill is unknown, the sources add.

With this, there are already three closures of areas of the Tenerife coast due to the presence of hydrocarbons.

This Monday, the Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council reported that it was closing the Almáciga beach, in Anaga, due to the presence of hydrocarbons in the water and sand. This Tuesday the Roque de las Bodegas beach was also sealed off. However, on Tuesday afternoon the City Council reported the removal of the seals placed in Almáciga after verifying that there were no longer any hydrocarbons.

The Santa Cruz beach area has reviewed the rest of the coastline and has not detected the presence of this type of hydrocarbon.
