New lease of life for Montaña Blanca
Plans to modernise a popular part of Fuerteventura are pressing ahead and are likely to be approved by the Canary Government.
The Commission of Land and Environment of the Canary Islands (Cotmac) has already given a favourable report to the ideas for the zone known as the Montaña Blanca in Caleta de Fuste.
The island’s Cabildo wants to increase its tourism appeal as many people are flocking here to enjoy spectacular views over the ocean, golf courses and landscape of Antigua.
Planners say there is a real need for Fuerteventura to diversify its tourism products, just as elsewhere in the Canaries.
At present, there are a number of abandoned buildings in the area which “create a gloomy picture of neglect.”
The new strategy will look at providing tourist accommodation and other facilities.
