In 1973, 270,000 tons of white sand was dispatched from Spanish Sahara to make a counterfeit beach of white sand. Two wharfs and a kilometer long embankment found 150 meters from the shoreline was built to keep waves from doing the sand to the ocean.
The undertaking cost 50 million pesetas and what's more 400 million pesetas in 1998 when another 2,800 tons sand from Sahara was added to renew the sand lost in the shoreline's 25 first long periods of presence.
