A new project bears fruit
By Dana Niland
Following the successful completion of a series of community-based initiatives, Caye Caulker has a new beach.
After completing its Action Plan for Sustainable Tourism Development of Caye Caulker in September 2015, The Belize Tourism Board identified beaches as one of the development objectives of infrastructure improvement.
A total of 1,883 linear feet of the beach was reclaimed, with widths varying from 70 to 118 feet in areas between Sobre las Olas to Rainbow Restaurant, and widths varying from 40 to 60 feet in area between Blue Island pier to Len’s Guest House.
The reclamation works will soon be complemented by the establishment of an improved craft center for local artisans in Caye Caulker.
