The mayor of El Ejido, Francisco Góngora, has taken advantage of the visit of the territorial delegate of Environment and Territory Planning, Raúl Enríquez, to the site of Punta Entinas-Sabinar, where the Board has carried out talks and improvement of this space through the program 'Lif Conhabit', co-financed by the European Union, to reiterate the convenience of complementing this type of actions with other environmental initiatives and tourism promotion.
Thus, the ejidense councilor has moved that, together with the European program of 'Conservation and improvement in priority habitats of the Andalusian coast', should promote the bike path project that would allow the connection between Almerimar and Roquetas de Mar through This Natural Site of Punta Entinas-Sabinar. Góngora, explained that "it is an ambitious initiative to enable more than 16 kilometers of bicycle path in this emblematic environment, whose processing we know is complex."
With this action, in his opinion, "it would put in value those more than 2,740 hectares of extraordinary environmental wealth with which the protected natural park has, with great faunistic, botanical and landscape values. So, it would be an attraction more from the tourist point of view. "
Precisely, the City Council of El Ejido recently presented in Fitur 2018 the APP El Ejido Tour 360º, a digital application that provides virtual experiences related to nature and sports for tourists looking for new sensations. A novel and striking tool that, precisely, offers the user an interesting tour in 3D through this Natural Area of Punta-Entinas, where you can know, in first person, both its landscape resources of this environment, which has a valuable ecosystem environmental, as well as all the possibilities it has to practice sports related to active tourism.
In this line of promotion, and always under the premise of its conservation, the mayor has offered the cession of a place of more than 200 m² in the area of the apartments closest to the entrance of the Paraje, for the creation of a Center of Interpretation, Study and Knowledge of the avifauna and the flora that inhabit this reserve. An initiative that, according to Góngora, "would help explain to tourists, visitors and schoolchildren what we have here, the environmental richness of this area, as well as raising awareness of the need to conserve this coastal area included in the Natura 2000 Network"
