Europe will have the first public access urban lagoon of Crystal Lagoons
In the municipality of Alovera, Mediterranean urban area of Spain and less than 30 kilometres from the capital Madrid, Crystal Lagoons will develop its first public access lagoon in Europe, according to Travel & Tour website.
The project, called Alovera Beach, will be a water park developed by Crystal Lagoons, in partnership with Grupo Constructor Rayet. It will involve 15.6 million euros of investment. Construction will create over 330 jobs, either directly or indirectly.
The complex 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 also include sports facilities, such as a volleyball pitch, area for children, a water park with slides, schools for sailing, 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 Spain stated.
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 space. 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.
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.
