THE Los Alcazares waterfront is getting a makeover all thanks to €3 million from the European Tourism Sustainability Funds. The town council aims to use these funds to spruce up the coastal area and address some longstanding issues.

Transforming La Maraña Ravine

One of the focal points of the plan will be at the La Maraña ravine which they plan to turn into a garden area that is capable of absorbing water runoff and minimising flood risks. The town council is in talks with the Ministry of Defense to unlock access to a coastal nature reserve through a raised walkway ensuring conservation while allowing access to the public.

Promoting an Eco-Friendly Future

To promote eco-friendly transportation they will install a comprehensive bike lane that will span the length of the entire promenade. They also plan to replace the current lights with energy-efficient lighting.

Post-Summer Work Schedule

The work is planned to begin post-summer so as not to disrupt the tourism high season on the Mar Menor.
