Town Hall improvements for Estepona Area, NEAR BENAHAVIS
Our development Capanes del Golf, is about 5 minutes drive inland from the municipality of Estepona, so plans for that area are always of interest to us. If we go to the beach, this is where we often go. If we are looking at schools, shops, restaurants and bars then we move around between Estepona and Benahavis itself.
So here we have some local news on developments in this area.
Firstly the council has installed a new bridge on the beach running from the Las Cañas stream to create a new stretch of coastal corridor. The new wooden structure connects the urbanisations Hacienda Beach and La Chimenea. The construction includes a pedestrian footpath and landscaping which will enable people to walk, or run, uninterruptedly for 1.2 kilometres by the sea. Eventually these stretches that are being built will all join up so that you will be able to go from Estepona Port for 15 kilometres of coast through pedestrian pathways. It will be a real boost to our beach area.
Furthermore, 3 new green and leisure areas have been assigned to Cancelada, a small town about 10 minutes drive away from Benahavis. The first 26,000 square meters has been assigned as a 7-a-side soccer field and a recreational area with gardens and bio-health circuits. Access to these facilities will be free and open to the public soon.
The second green area that has been developed is a meeting and leisure point for locals of about 7,500 square meters, which includes games tables and street furniture, gardens and trees. And finally, the third area of 14,000 square meters is being converted into a large public park with a pedestrian circuit and sports area. Green areas are being conserved to be enjoyed by all, and will include a playground for children, a petanque alley outdoor gymnasium. More green areas are being generated close by in Bel-Air, as Estepona continues its promotion to be the “Garden of the Costa del Sol”.
Capanes del Golf is ideally located as it benefits from these busier coastal areas being re-generated, but at the same time still retains its tranquil luxury environment in the countryside of Benahavis.
