I know we are locked down and can't go out but TripAdvisor message board are saying the lido by pablado marinero is being changed into a car park

Surely not

I wondered where everybody would park when the road works make the road up from the harbour two way and pedestrianise the other side. That is a lot of parking spots removed.

The work at the moment in the lido is the continuation of the replacement pipes which run throughout Los Gigantes.

Road works started again at the beginning of this week.  They are currently working at the junction by Simple Simons but there are only about 4 men working.  It would be nice if the could get it all finished while this lock down continues!!!

I know it's an old one, but they have found a hole and they are looking in to it.

Thanks. The only difference I can see from a picture I took on 10th of March is they have tidied up a bit and planted the trees.

Went to Milan on business a few years ago and everything had graffiti

It was horrible but the locals called it art

How interesting

It is exactly the same construction as the existing stretch to the right of the photo that goes from Crab Island to the little mirrador. It is mainly just missing the glass balustrades that stick out over the cliff to fill the gaps you can see.

The mirrador was vandalised by some British yobs that left their post code as graffiti last year. So yes it does attract idiots with paint. I wouldn't call them artists.

According to JA the Canaries are going for "sustainable intelligent tourism" in the "new normal". No idea what that means. Perhaps an intelligence test as well as a Covid19 test on entry.

I think they will mainly go bust then. The money is in the cheap mass tourism.

From what I see it is the Brits who spend the money! The Russians have not got it. The Germans are to healthy, just walking and eating the right things. So the unintelligent obese Brits it is then!
