Better access to popular Costa Teguise beach
The beach of Los Charcos in Costa Teguise has been made more accessible thanks to the insular investment plans of the Cabildo of Lanzarote.
Both the access and the asphalting had deteriorated, said the authority, which has completed the improvements at a cost of 173,000 euros under the Canary Government financing scheme.
President of the Cabildo, Pedro San Ginés, said the work responded to “an important and necessary demand of Teguise in terms of improving the infrastructure of this tourist nucleus.”
The first vice-president and advisor of the Project Planning and Coordination Unit, José Juan Cruz, pointed out that the project, included in the island’s investment plans implemented in all municipalities on the island of Lanzarote and in La Graciosa, “has been financed through the so-called tourist infrastructure plans of the regional government with a cost of close to 173,000 euros, whose works were awarded in May 2016 to the company Hormigones Insulares.”
Director of Tourism Infrastructure, Héctor Suárez, said “the final objective of this work coincides with the last slogan of World Tourism Day, which addressed the issue of accessibility as the main axis”.
He pledged the Cabildo’s intention to continue working towards more improvements in the tourist destinations of the archipelago.
The work at Los Charcos included improving the coastal walk and stairs in a style fitting into the environment of Costa Teguise.
