Arillas Beach 2013: some news and pictures



http://www.arillas.com/forum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=342

Arillas beach is finally coming back!!!
The great weather conditions and calm sea in addition to the right wind and currents directions, as well as a small interference to the nature have managed to bring the sand back to the shore. For the entire winter we did not have much sand on our beach. it is not unusual but it does make us wonder every time it happens.
The interference was inspired by the Arillas business association during last yearís meetings and councils, So with the help of the local council and monetization from the local business owners a small development had been taken place on the beach.
A small line of rocks were placed in the water under Kaloudis village and Marinaki area (close to where the wooden steps used to be) that is supposed to stop the current and keep more sand to the shore.
Twelve trees were planted along the beach front  in order to provide shade and decorate the beach front. I must say that our beach has had in the past the same kind of trees before the taverns and hotels were build that were cut to make space for buildings.
 Three Benches were build out of stone ( that was a private and anonymous donation)  and a ramp is now  created instead of the wooden stairs.  
A free parking area is created behind Kostas on the beach and Thalassa  and a new place for keeping the  rubbish bins out of the beach front.

I will be posting more pictures soon,
I,m sure there are more things that we have donne and we will be doing , I will be keeping you all informed!

Dimitris....excellent work from the community. It will be appreciated by all this summer and us from 15-29th June.
Its good to see the temperature climbing each week!
Just been reading in the paper about Greece selling off Government owned assets all over the place including the embassy in London. Let's hope they aren't thinking of selling the road into Arillas to a private investor or we'll all have to arrive by boat!...Perhaps the community will have to extend the pier for next year!!

I have religious problems now. My belief in perfection (which Arillas has always been to me) rides on the idea that it can't be improved. So I was wrong. Heaven was supposed to be perfection, and now heaven is going to be even better.

I have Dimitris to blame for this. He has led Arillas into a new wave that will wash away the past and make it into the future. Arillas was always the jewel in Corfu's crown, but he has had the vision and the determination to make his hometown sparkle even brighter.

I love the changes.  And will be lucky enough to see them all in July. As I said, you can all blame the boss for making heaven even better than it used to be.

Phil

Many thanks for the photos, the best can not be improved, so we are told, but the community of Arillas has done just that......they have improved the best place in the world.

The main beach is looking GOOD. You will all be impressed.
However, for me what is more impressive is that all these improvements have been made by the local community...not the council.
I feel privileged to be part of such a community....and maybe we may all want to contribute to this at some point...watch this space....

From Heather and myself, I`d also loke to add our thanks to Dimitris and friends for the improvements to the village.
  It seems you are always looking to find ways to make things better for us visitors, without going overboard.
  Things are looking good!!
