This influx of tourists in summer is to much, so the authorities did raise the need to limit the number of vehicles that used the Genoveses road to get to the beaches.

Once the barrier is down the only way to access the beaches is walking, bicycle or public transport . The bus service at begining costed € 3, but due to popular rejection and complaints from tourism sector of San Jose price was lowered to 1 €.
Bus schedule a Genoveses is from 9 am to 9 pm.
