One hundred and ten of Greeces best beaches are on sale by Greeces privatization agency, the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund (TAIPED) in the name of supposed development and utilization of public assets. In fact a sale off of Greece best beaches for cash so that the debt-ridden country can pay back its lenders.
The beaches plots are to be on sale with 50 years of utilization by the new owners.
In the list of TAIPED are featured among others Myrto Beach in Kato Achaia, Vasiliki Beach in Lefkada, Kalmitsi beach in Chalkidiki and what a shame two beaches in Elafonisos, the small island between Peloponnese and Kythira, famous for its blue-green waters and light colored sandy beaches.
From the list of 110 beaches
Myrtoula beach, Kato Achaia area, West Achaia Municipality, Achaia
Korfoxylia, Magouliana area, Municipality of Gortynia, Arcadia
Agioi Anargyroi area, Municipality of Ermioni, Argolida, Peloponnese
Koronissia area, Arta
Kalamitsi, Municipality of Sithonia, Chalkidiki
Nea Propontida, Nea Irakleia, Chalkidiki
Nea Fokea area, Kassandra Municipality, Chalkidiki
Porto Koufo area, Toroni, Sithonia Municipality, Chalkidiki
Filizi area, near Naousa, Paros island, Cyclades
Apokofto or Agia Kyriaki, Agios Ioannis area, Tinos island, Cyclades
Ixia, Rhodes island, Dodecanese
For sale is a 175,000 sq m plot of Sarakino beach. While TAIPED warns the future buyers of Forestry, Enviromental and Legal restrictions, it notes that the investor could build Hotel and/or vacation homes.
However after the outcry in Greece and the fierce opposition by residents and local officials in Elafonisos, TAIPED announced the island beaches will not be for sale now but on a later point.
As the new draft bill for the regulation of seashores foresees that the sold beaches must allow a small space for the public to use for free, it is really hilarious to see the plot of Sarakino beach for sale: it is marked with red ink. A tiny strip of beach is foreseen for free access for the public. The free beach is so small that it will allow swimmers to enjoy sun bathing most probably standing on their feet.
“The beaches plots are to be on sale with 50 years of utilization by the new owners. “
That’s not a sale...that’s a rental.
Not a very long rental at that...
Greece will become a Russian colony before too long.
And.....The majority of the rent goes to pay for the godless K-12 schools that preach the religion of godless secular humanism and teach children to worship at the altar of godless statism.
So?....Each time anyone writes a check for property taxes they should remember that government K-12 indoctrination camps are a First Amendment and freedom of conscience abomination.
