PORT PASSED Playa Blanca Harbour Expansion Starts in August

The long awaited project to expand the harbour in Playa Blanca will get underway this August and is expected to take up to four years to complete at a cost of just over €39 million.

The Playa Blanca to Corralejo in Fuerteventura crossing is the busiest in the Canaries and during the first four months of this year alone traffic between these two hubs topped 328,217 users.

In order to accommodate this growing demand over the coming decades the size of the port at Playa Blanca is going to be more than doubled, to just over 205,000 square metres. Crucially, this expansion will then allow medium size cruise vessels to dock in Playa Blanca for the first time - an innovation which is expected fo further dynamise the tourist market in the south of the island.
