Greece has introduced new measures for some of its most popular beaches.
In a bid to enhance safety for those visiting its glimmering crystal-clear waters that sparkle in the sunshine, authorities have instated specific rules:
- Beach umbrellas and sun loungers must be placed at least four metres apart
- Beach umbrellas and sun loungers must also undergo regular disinfection
- Staff must wear face masks at all times in public, and undergo COVID-19 testing before working
- Music is not allowed to be played at a high volume
Beachgoers are not required to wear a face mask while swimming or sunbaking.
