Tee Times Algarve Holidays: Quarteira-Vilamoura Promenade Connection Requalification Works Begin

The previously announced “Passeio das Dunas” (“The Dunes Promenade”) project by the municipality of Loulé for the urban redevelopment of the coastal zone west of Quarteira – east of Vilamoura, which connects Quarteira to Vilamoura Marina’s has now started it’s works on the field. It is considered one of the most significant urban rehabilitation projects planned for the municipality of Loulé, for Quarteira and Vilamoura, but also for the Algarve.

The current route that connects the leftovers of what once used to be the old fishermen sheds, near the fishing dock, to the beach front that sides with the Vilamoura’s Marina, was being used extensively as a walk stroll by many but it clearly lacked the proper infrastructures and it was a contrasting gap.

With this intervention, performed in 17.7 hectares, it is intended to create a seaside promenade that connects the Vilamoura’s Marina to Quarteira’s beach promenade, with the creation of green spaces, focusing on pedestrian and cyclist circulation, creating recreational spaces, enhancing and rehabilitating the contact with the sea front and running as a new point of attraction, taking in consideration the built environment with the construction and enhancement of accesses to beaches which constitute the main “entertainment space” of these areas.

The redevelopment work zone develops between the Armação Street in Quarteira and the front of the Crowne Plaza Hotel (formerly Hotel Atlantis), being bounded on the south by the beaches and the fishing port of Quarteira and to the north by Vala Real and provides the resolution of the problem of Vala Real, with its partial coverage.

This intervention seeks to fundamentally change the character of the area, promoting a currently vacant site, a no man’s land, capable of living for itself as a source of energizing vitality but also as a requalified public space that is also a promoter of flows between different urban areas and beaches.

The works that have just started are expected to last for 13 months, nearing the end of 2015. It will surely bring value to the area for both the current population and the many visitors it receives, so its end is, naturally, being anxiously expected by many in the Algarve.
