View looking inland across one of artificial beaches designed by MANRIQUE to boost the amenities for the tourist trade. The two white buildings in the bcakground are hotels, the thinner towers are apartment blocks. Left of picture is a small 17th coastal fortification. Over 20,000 cubic metres of dark sand were imported to create beaches surrounded by landscaped garden areas on what was previously a rocky coastline. Further offshore concrete blocks beneath the water break up the effects of the waves.
