Biggest land-locked beach in Europe to open in 2020
10 November 2017 @ 08:48

EUROPE'S biggest inland beach will be open for bathers from the year 2020 in a town well over 400 kilometres from the nearest coast.

Alovera, in the land-locked Castilla-La Mancha province of Guadalajara, is barely 50 kilometres from Madrid, so it is often quicker for inhabitants to fly to the closest beach from Barajas airport.

But it will have its own in less than three years, thanks to a €15.6-million investment by the construction firm Rayet.

A 25,000-metre lake – over six acres – bordered by 15,000 metres (3.7 acres) of sandy shores with the usual kiosk-type beach bars, a huge water park, and even a watersports area are included in the complex designed by an international company which specialises in inland beaches, Crystal Lagoon.

Areas clearly separated from each other for safety and comfort will include a sailing zone, bathing area, children's pool and slides, a watersports school teaching kayaking, paddle-surfing and other popular sea-based activities, and a sports and training area with beach volleyball courts, zip-lines and an outdoor gym.
