Crystal Lagoons will develop Europe’s largest man-made beach
The largest artificial beach in Europe will be only 30 minutes from Madrid, the capital of Spain, and its centerpiece will be a public access lagoon developed by Crystal Lagoons, according to hundreds of media from different countries.
In Australia, the portal TravelNine.com highlighted that “People flocking to Spain can soon lay their towels down at the largest man-made beach in Europe, without even leaving the country’s capital and enjoying a stretch of sand and picture-perfect waters more than 300 kilometers away from the sea”.
The aquatic park, called Alovera Beach, will open all year round and it expects to receive around half a million visitors per year, reinvigorating tourism in this area. The project will feature a 2.5-hectare turquoise lagoon surrounded by a 1.5-hectare long white sandy beach as its main attraction. Everybody will have access to the lagoon after paying an entrance ticket.
Alovera Beach will be developed by Crystal Lagoons, in partnership with Grupo Rayet. It will involve 15.6 million Euros of investment. Construction will create over 330 jobs, either directly or indirectly.
Crystal Lagoons’ Public Access Lagoons are triggering a true revolution in terms of leisure, setting a new era for recreational facilities and higher standards for public spaces. These lagoons are being developed in some of the most diverse places imagined, such as public parks, and they are bringing holiday destinations to people’s doorsteps.
The complex will also include sports facilities, such as a volleyball pitch, an area for children, a water park with slides, sailing school, kayaking, paddle surfing, restaurants, commercial areas among other venues.
As in every single Crystal Lagoons project, and Alovera Beach will not be the exception, the project will have the novel and disruptive technology that consumes 30 times less water than a golf course and the ultrasound filtration technology that uses 50 times less energy than conventional filtration systems.
“Public Access Lagoons will dramatically change the lifestyle in cities. They will allow people to enjoy a beach-like lifestyle and to practice water sports on a daily basis. The latter will be as normal as going to the gym”, Francisco Matte, Crystal Lagoons’ Regional Director for Europe stated.
After a few months of having announced the Public Access Lagoon business model, the multinational innovation company has already signed eight projects (4 in Korea, 1 in the U.S., 1 in Turkey, and 1 in Spain), apart from 35 other projects in negotiation and development stages.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
