SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, Nov 9 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The insular director of Tourism, Laura Castro, the general director of Tourist Infrastructure of the Government of the Canary Islands, Fernando Miñarro, and the mayor of Guía de Isora, Josefa Mesa, visited the Puntablanca promenade this Tuesday, which with almost 1.6 kilometers long, it joins the nuclei of Alcalá and Varadero, in the southern municipality.
Castro assured that “it is a walk that was very necessary, since it allows, both the local population but also tourists, in a municipality, such as Guía de Isora, with an important tourist offer and to which it is also necessary to provide areas like these that, at the same time, make it possible to reach the beach in an accessible way “.
In this sense, he stressed the importance of the ‘Tenerife and the Sea’ program, through which, from the Cabildo, the island’s coastal areas can be made “meeting places and recreation for everyone”.
In addition, “thanks to this work we have regenerated the environment and reinforced the breakwater, which has been greatly degraded by the onslaught of the sea, which allows the image of the destination to be, as we try to do in all the municipalities in which we operate, sustainable and quality, “he said.
For his part, Fernando Miñarro assured that “the new tourist and sports trail is a fantastic place to carry out healthy outdoor activities”.
Thus, “the relationship with the coastline is strengthened by facilitating access to the sea and environmental quality is improved by regenerating the area with native vegetation, the objective is to offer the visitor a pleasant environment where they can enjoy the landscape with all the guarantees”.
For his part, Josefa Mesa, who attended together with the councilor for Urbanism and Accessibility of the municipality, Eduardo González, stated that the works carried out have led to an improvement in the coastal recovery project “for the enjoyment of all.”
In his opinion, “the accessibility, spaces for the walk, viewpoints and other elements, have managed to create a much better public space, it is the line to be followed by the City Council and we hope to continue counting on the support of the Cabildo and Government of the Canary Islands to recover our Isoran coast, which is one of the most attractive “.
The refurbishment works of the Punta Blanca road, between the nuclei of Alcalá and Varadero, in its phases 3, 4 and 5, in Guía de Isora, began in October 2020.
They have involved an investment of 635,991.65 euros, and have been financed by the Government of the Canary Islands, through the agreement signed with the Secretary of State for Tourism for the rehabilitation and equipping of tourist areas.
The action carried out included the expansion of the existing promenade in Punta Blanca, whose works were carried out by the insular area of Municipal Cooperation, as well as access to the beach through a paved ramp, the construction of three viewpoints distributed along the promenade. .
