CTB starts clean-up public beaches west area of the island
WILLEMSTAD - The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) together with the Ministry of Public Health, Environment and Nature started last weekend with the project to clean-up and fix the public beaches in Banda Bou, which is the western side of the island. These beaches were damaged by Hurricane Matthew and also the southwest winds the island was confronted with at the beginning of last week.
A contractor started with the clean-up project of several beaches. The beaches that are part of this project are Playa Kalki, Playa Grandi (Playa Piskadó), Playa Fòrti, Playa Abou (Playa Kenepa Grandi), Playa Kenepa Chikí, Playa Jeremi, Playa Lagun, Playa Sta. Cruz, Playa Daaibooi, Playa Boca Sami and Playa Wachi.
It is important for the public to take note that some of these beaches are not accessible until further notice. Hopefully by today in the afternoon some of them will be accessible to the public. These beaches are Playa Piskadó and Playa Daaibooi, while Playa Lagun, Playa Sta. Cruz and Playa Boca Sami are partially accessible. By this afternoon they will be completely accessible. Playa Kenepa Grandi and Chikí will be accessible on Friday, October 14 in the morning.
CTB also started the process to analyze the costs of repairing the facilities that were damaged at the beaches such as the palapas and the benches.
