Update 8 July 2013: It always takes a while here, but it always looks lovely when it’s finally finished! Here’s Callao Salvaje beach, complete with parasols … and a lifeguard there too!
Update 11 November 2012: Adeje councillor for Obras y Servicios, Gonzalo Delgado Díaz, has announced that at last the Canarian Government has given authorization for the first phase of the coastal walkway between Callao Salvaje and Playa Paraíso. The works will be put out to tender in the next few weeks, and the Ayuntamiento hopes that they will start before the new year. The first phase has a budget of €600,000 and should take around six months to complete the 700m stretch.
Update 27 August: The Servicio Provincial de Costas in Santa Cruz has now handed over the whole beach project to Adeje Ayuntamiento. The beach is now fully Adeje’s responsibility, and along with taking over the cleaning and security, the Ayuntamiento can now at last put the kiosk and sunbed and umbrella services out to tender. Concejal de Urbanismo y Gestión del Territorio, José María Álvarez Acosta, said that Adeje would work as quickly as possible so that the facilities would be available to the public. Details of the requirements for applicants in the tender will be published in the Boletín Oficial de la Provincia de Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Update 29 June: I thought some might enjoy seeing the latest of the beach, in full use now, and looking beautiful. The above photo is courtesy of Nova, whose lovely website is HERE. Enjoy.
Update 18 May 6pm: Here are a couple of photos courtesy of John of The Tenerife Forum of the beach today, with the crowds gathered for the opening ceremony, and of the pristine beach looking down towards the new jetty. A marvellous day for Callao Salvaje.
Update 18 May: At last it’s open. The new beach, Playa de Ajabo, will be formally opened at midday by local and regional officials, including Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga. Some aspects of the project, like the licence for the kiosk, are still to be completed, but at last, Callao Salvaje has the beach for which it has been waiting decades.
Update 13 April: The mayor of Adeje, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, said today that Playa de Ajabo, Callao Salvaje’s new beach, will be open to the public within a month, and that the Ayuntamiento is already putting out to tender bids to run the kiosk, sunbeds and umbrellas.
Update 4 April: The works on the new beach will be finished a few days after Easter, Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga said today in a visit to the area, confirming that they will be formally concluded by tourism councillor Rafael Dolado. The beach and surrounding landscaping has cost around €1.2 million, fully funded by the Department of the Environment.
