Carboneras will get a new marina, or sports port, before 2020.
The Junta confirmed yesterday in a meeting with the Mayor that the new marina will be included in the 2015-2020 “Ports of Andalucia” development plan, although no firm timescale has been announced.
It’s been on the cards for the last 20 years, but the port of Carboneras has always been firmly industrial and fishing.
The Mayor says it’s all part of his plan to make Carboneras “the entrance to the Natural Park”, and says he fully expects to attract sailing tourists, as well as local residents who like sailing.
Carboneras currently has two ports – the privately owned one for the power station, and the main fishing / industrial port.
