Almuñécar saw a presentation in the Majuelo Park for a proposed Marina that, according to the Mayor, could be finished within two years.
This announcement took everybody by surprise because in the words of the Mayor, Trinidad Herrera, the Town Hall has been very discrete about it. Behind the project are a number of Granada-based companies with an investment of over 31m euros.
The marina project, which will comprise of 450 berths, a shopping area and parking, will be the biggest on the Costa Tropical. The exact location has not been announced other than it will be somewhere between Las Gondolas and Aquatropic.
Present at the presentation were the Mayor, several councillors, the Chairman of the Port Authorities, two Junta bigwigs and a partridge in a pear tree.
The project at the moment is being scrutinised by the Regional Department of the Environment but the Mayor seems confident that it will fly through – in fact she said, “with any luck, within a few months we could see construction work commence.
Editorial comment: if you talk to the old folk they will tell you “La Mar siempre reclamar lo suyo.” This basically means that if you take something from the sea in one place, it will take it back further along the coast. This is what happened when they built Aquatropic on reclaimed land, Velilla lost swathes of beach.
