A proposal to reactivate plans to build a harbour between Torrox and Nerja was one of the main items on the agenda during a visit to the Axarquía on Tuesday by Patricia Navarro from the regional government, the Junta de Andalucía. The idea has been on the cards for a number of years, although nothing has ever come of it.
The mayor of Torrox Óscar Medina, said the project was, "fundamental for social, economic and tourism development in the Axarquía." Navarro also spoke of the need "not to copy the western Costa del Sol" as she said that the Axarquía "has different characteristics" and that the area needs to consider the concept of "ecotourism." The regional politician also visited Almáchar and Vélez-Málaga, where the reinstatement of the town's tram system was discussed.
