On the outskirts of Madrid, Spain builds Europe’s largest artificial beach

Alovera Beach

SPAIN'S newest saltwater beach will have a variety of water sports, waterslides, bars and eateries

Because of its many cultural attractions and cosmopolitan environment, Madrid is a popular travel destination for both Spanish and foreign tourists. However, because the city can get quite hot in the summer, many residents choose to escape the heat by heading to the coast.

Alovera Beach, which is barely 52.7 kilometres from the Spanish capital city in Guadalajara, will soon become the largest urban beach in Europe, therefore making up for this deficiency.

The public tender for the construction projects, which will contain 21,000 square metres of water surrounded by about 17,000 square metres of beach, is expected to be approved in the next days by the municipal council in Alovera.

Alovera Beach intends to set the standard for outdoor water activities with a sports school for sailing, paddle boarding, and kayaking, and a zip line and beach volleyball courts. The impressive complex will not only have a selection of beach bars and restaurants where tourists visit a waterside cocktail or cool drink. kayaking and paddle boarding are available, along with a zip line & beach volleyball courts.

All of this is in addition to the numerous entertaining slides and play areas created to engage the entire family. In 2023, the much-awaited saltwater beach is scheduled to open.

A total of 350 direct and indirect employment will be generated by the expansive project, which will have an initial expenditure of 15.6 million euros. It will also get between 250,000 and 400,000 visitors annually.
