PLANS to build Europe’s largest man-made beach in Spain have been approved.
Construction firm Grupo Rayet has been given the green light to build Alovera Beach in the Spanish mainland, around a 45-minute drive away from Madrid in the municipality of Alovera.
The €15.6 million project will boast a 25,000-metre-square lake and a 15,000-square-metre white sand beach and is expecting to receive 250,000 people a year.
Grupo Rayet’s computerised images of what the project will look like also show an area for sailing and even has space for water slides.
Users will be charged €10 a head to use the facilities, which is expected to be ready in three years (2020) according to Grupo Rayet president Felix Abanades.
