Red buoys are available for visiting boats to anchor, yellow buoys indicate the route to dive.
In an effort to brighten up the city, the mayor of Elche, Carlos Gonzalez, has announced that the city council has received €9,963,980 to carry out a facelift in the Porfirio Pascual neighborhood of Carrus. The Consell has now authorized the granting of grants to rehabilitate the neighborhood as part of the Restoration, Transformation and Resilience Plan. “The goal is to transform Porfirio Pascual and transform it into a neighborhood of the 21st century,” the mayor added. The proposed action covers an area of 18 buildings and 302 dwellings, with a population of 774 people. The area is characterized by the high vulnerability of the inhabitants in the residential, economic and social field and by a serious situation of substandard housing.
