Improvements to Caleta de Fuste Beach
The Canarian Government has insisted that the improvements to the El Castillo Beach are continuing as planned and that the works are currently at the excavation stage. Rocks are being excavated so that the beach is more attractive even at low tide and so that the beach can be covered in an additional 100,000 cubic metres of sand. Currently the beach sees little use at low tide due to the rocky nature of the lower beach.
