But these aren’t the only attractions of this city beach. There will be also be DJ sessions, yoga, zumba, and gymnastics for the visitors.
As per the plan, this urban beach is expected to open from 1st July, 2018 and run until 31st August, 2018, which are the hottest months in the city. While this will be Madrid’s first-ever city beach, the region already has Virgen de la Nueva beach, which is a blue-flagged beach located on the San Juan reservoir.
