Are there plans to extend the port at Playa Blanca ?

Asked by: 14th January 2015

Heard this on the jungle drums. Plans to increase the capacity at Playa Blanca port will allow the berthing of cruise ships. Is there any truth in the message?

    There was talk a couple of years back they were going to build a container port on the other side of the harbour
    This would mean it would be in front of Puerta Chico complex
    At the time all the locals was very unhappy and they were organising a protest ( seen the posters )
    I have heard nothing since and whether its something to do with what you have mentioned I don’t know
    I think cruise ships would look nicer than a container port

    Plans were submitted and passed in 2014 for an extension to the original docks, with the extension due to be started this year 2015 but I am not sure about cruise ships calling.

    There will be berths for 4 cruise ships when the extension is complete. The work is out to tender and should be completed within 5 years.
