Sand to Soller

Politicians in Soller certainly didn't bury their heads in the sand over the beach situation

Politicians in Soller certainly didn't bury their heads in the sand over the beach situation in Puerto Soller - they couldn't as there just wasn't enough of the stuff. Instead they've organised the
complete regeneration of Traves beach in the port by shipping in 40,000 tonnes from the mainland – enough to build plenty of castles for years to come.

The first of three sand tankers arrives today to start pumping the sand along a series of pipes to the beach. The boats have been collecting the sand in Valencia after it has been transported by
trucks from a quarry in Albacete.

The 8,000 cubic metres of sand will create a fantastic beach and give Puerto Soller a helping hand in attracting people looking for a 'sun and sand' holiday
as well as the hiking and cycling set. Hoteliers in the port are understandably happy about this.
