APRIL 2021

Once more we want to emphasize that a joint effort by both members of the public and ProDunas is essential to conserve the different dune ecosystems in the Municipality of Marbella.

We always focus on the future and have already done a lot of work in the rehabilitation of the various dune environments. So that this could come about we were able to count on the invaluable Sponsorship from the Trocadero Group. They provided us with 80 wooden stakes and 200m of sisal rope – and thanks to this sponsorship we were able to enlist workers from the Environment Delegation who dug the holes and positioned the stakes in the shortest possible time. ProDunas then linked up the stakes with the vegetal rope, thus clearly marking out the protected dune area.

Our thanks go to the Trocadero Group as well as to the Marbella Town Hall workers.


Splendid Sponsorship by the Trocadero Group. The ProDunas team greatly appreciates this gift. The vests are really necessary both to protect our own clothes and to identify us to the general public.

We will take great care of them for many years to come. Thank you very much!


To add to the enjoyment of the dunes by providing nature lovers with a quiet place to contemplate the maritime-dune landscape and to acknowledge ProDunas’ work over the years, the BENAHAVIS ROTARY CLUB has funded the placement of a wooden seat on the ADELFA dune in Bahía de Marbella.

The seat will have a plaque attached to it acknowledging their generous gift to the people of Marbella.

It will leave their mark for many years to come on the La Adelfa dune in Bahia de Marbella.

On behalf of ProDunmas and of everyone who will use this seat in the future, we offer our appreciation for the kind gesture of the Benahavis Rotary Club. Thank you!

Diputación Provincial de Málaga

The Provincial Council of Malaga is investing a lot of time, money and hard work to save 40 native shrubs from destruction. These were planted 12 years ago in the Easement where the boardwalk will now run. They have been transplanted to a new dune area and will be carefully looked after until they root again.

The program to extend the coastal walkway east of Marbella – specifically in La Adelfa and Bahia de Marbella – is gaining strength as we come to the end of 2017.

To keep this dune environment in optimum condition and to respect the criteria of the legal framework of the Ecological Reserve-Dunas de Marbella, the Provincial Council of Malaga has put 400 wooden stakes interconnected by sisal rope in place between the beach and the dune. This should encourage members of the public to look after the dune and not use it as a slide or sunbathe up on the dune ridge.

We appreciate the efforts of the Provincial Council of Malaga – one more step has been taken towards the maintenance of the dunes and the extension of the coastal walkway.
