New Tauro Beach To Be Finished In 2015

After 20 years of delays, the Tauro artificial beach project is on; Grupo Anfi now has final approval from Spain's Costas department to make the beach and a 50-year concession to exploit it commercially. It expects to spend 6 million euros on the project and to be finished by the end of 2015. 

The new Tauro beach (which Grupo Anfi are imaginatively trying to brand as Anfi Tauro) will be twice the size of the existing pebble beach at 300 metres long and 50 metres wide. It's expected to be made from white sand imported from the Caribbean (like Anfi beach) rather than the coarser sand at Amadores beach (which was dredged from off Pasito Blanco). The initial project also seems to include a seafront promenade linking Tauro beach to Amadores.

Local footballer David Silva (a former sponsor of Anfi and investor in the Amadores Beach Club) has already christened the new beach by adding the first spadeful of sand at a press conference at Tauro beach this morning.

Anfi also plans to build a 400 berth marina at Tauro beach, along with 7,500 hotel beds and an 18.500 square metre recreational area (shops).
