Council wants to reopen renovated Praia de Faro campsite as soon as ‘this summer’
The Praia de Faro campsite may “open this summer” after the extensive renovation works that it is currently undergoing, Rogério Bacalhau, Mayor of Faro, revealed. Although there are still no certainties, given the delays the project suffered due to the ongoing pandemic, the council is convinced that “if things go well”, it will be possible that the opening will take place within this summer season.
“We believe that we will be able to have the Camping Park open this summer,” he said. “What the contractor tells me is that, next month, it will be ready. If that happens, it is likely that we will be able to open in August”, he added. The initial objective of the council “was to open now”.
But, with COVID-19, the new tourism project was delayed, as there were “other more priority measures that we had to take, related to the pandemic”.
Something that will not be a hindrance, in the case of the Faro camping site, are “conditions of work”, says Bacalhau. “We will take all the necessary measures so that the reopening is done safely”. “We will see if we have conditions for that. If there are, we will do that”, concluded the Mayor of Faro.
