    The Law intending to order the demolishing of houses built too near the sea has been abolished/changed. I only heard it on car radio so not sure of all the details. Many people were allowed to live in them but not sell them, now they can sell.

    According to Typically Spanish, “the change comes as an attempt to lessen the barrage of criticism the law has received from Europe, following complaints from the British and German embassies”.

    Interestingly none of those articles mention what is the exact definition of the coastline. Referring to where the sea reaches in a storm is a bit vague to say the least. What if you have a really big storm or a Tsunami!

    I did some reading up on this subject a year ago or so, and I believe the costal zone prohibited from construction is 100m from the high water mark.
