  • Does anyone know anything about plans to build a "lido" style pool in the plaza across from the Medical Centre in Puerto Santiago/Playa la Arena. Heard nothing concrete just various snippets of gossip.

    End in Sight for Santiago Plaza Lido Project 1 October 2006
    The government of the Canary Islands has awarded the contract for the "Lago de Santiago" developement project in Puerto Santiago Tenerife to the V V O company this week. The long delayed project to build a lido with two swimming pools in the ravine next to the public plaza has been on the table for over 10 years.

    Lago Santiago -a reality at last ? 12 May 2006
    The Department of Touristic Infrastructure, which is part of the larger Department of Tourism of the Government of the Canary has at last put out to public tender the contracts for works to enlarge and remodel the Lago Santiago area. Long time visitors and residents will remember that the plan for this "Lido" has been on the table for over a decade.
    The announcement included details of a maximum budget available approaching two and a half million euros (2,487,144.61) with the proviso that the works must completed in a period of no longer than 18 months from their inception.

    The works out to tender will finalise the plaza at Puerto de Santiago and construct complementary buildings, such as restaurants, shops, changing rooms and public toilets amongst other things,as well as putting in a swimming pool, gardens and board walk on the beach.

    According to an earlier comment on the subject from the Mayor of Santiago del Teide, Juan Dami'e1n Gorr'edn Ramos, "The Lago Santiago is an important project for the coastline of Puerto Santiago. The plan is to cover in the barranco (shown above left in the aerial view of Puerto Santiago) which has been previously laid with piping, construct a large sea water swimming pool and a children's pool . Also the entire area will be refurbished to create a large sun deck and walkways complementing the existing plaza".

    Friday 2 June 2006 CCN and Antonio Sanchez "concerned about the problem"
    We received the following from Antonio Sanchez of the local CCN party in answer to the claims made by the Spanish press recently:-

    The CCN fully supports the claims made by the local inhabitants of Puerto Santiago. In fact the situation is much more serious, the whole coastline from Playa de la Arena to Los Gigantes is affected, and none of the sewage treatment systems are working, and haven't been for quite some time. This is not only a health hazzard, detrimental to marine and other wildlife in the area, but also detracts from the "blue flag" image the Town Hall so proudly boasts. CCN shares the concerns of the people of Puerto Santiago, and will make sure that this situation will have maximum priority in their proposals for the 2007 elections.
    The announcement of the long awaited Lago Santiago project has been timed as another election stunt, just like the official opening of Fisherwoman monument, which is still under repair and hasn't been seen working since, due to technical problems (there isn't even a direct water supply, it has to be filled from the fire hydrant across the road). Will the council wait until the swimming pool of the Lago Santiago project fills up with untreated sewage before they do anything about it?
    Yes, CCN wants to see the image of Santiago del Teide improve, we want Santiago del Teide to prosper, but first and foremost, priority must be given to the basics, the improvement of the elementary neccessities and services that both residents and visitors expect and deserve, and this in turn will encourage growth, investment and the return of the tourism that this area so badly needs.

  • Yes, in time it'll be nice to have the lido but Sr Sanchez is right that the sewage treatment systems are a priority.
    More and more houses and apartments, the extension of the TF-1 almost to our front door, a new marina development for Fonsalia....where is all this money coming from ?

    The area will be nice when its all finished !

    PS Did Spiderman's Morrocan accomplice have his own superhero name ?
    Well done to the local police !

  • Ref. Lago de Santiago

    The 'Collapsed Road' has reopened to traffic and the pavements and safety railings will soon be completed.

    The Lago de Santiago Prject was put 'on hold' when the road collapsed. I was hoping that the project would be restarting in the near future.
    I have heard from a reliable source that the project has once again been put 'on hold' because of some problem with the COSTAS.

    Anybody know if this is correct ?

    Thank you,
    El Presidente
