Benidorm - Bigger Beach for La Cala

Good news for visitors to La Cala at the western end of Benidorm's Poniente beach. Finestrat council, where La Cala is located, are at last able to demolish the Anfora building which has stood in ruins by the beach for years.

The building was started in the mid 60's and never finished. It actually stands on public coastal land and also blocks rights of way and has been an eyesore for all this time.

Now, after a long process of negotiation, the council have acquired the building and are going to demolish it. It all has to be done by hand for the first phase as the Anfora adjoins another building, after this the heavy machines will take over to finish the job.

Once it's gone the council would like to expand the beach making it more accessible for everyone.
