Marbella’s Big Clean Up

It may be a celebration of purity and new beginnings, but the day after San Juan has become synonymous with the rubbish left by revellers

This year Marbella Town Hall reported that they removed 11 tons of rubbish from the beaches yesterday, left by the thousands that flocked to the events organised by the Town Hall. Although this is four tonnes less than  the previous year, it is still a depressing amount considering that marine pollution is now a high profile global issue.

As well as the traditional bonfires on the beach,  El Cable featured a live performance of  Los Calvin and DJ Pakkito 2000, while  La Salida in San Pedro Alcántara held the Holi Colors festival, with Miguel Campello, singer of 'El bicho' and local artists We are not dj's performing.
