I received an anonymous email of great
We want to alert you about a project which we hope will not become a
reality. For those of you who have swam, snorkeled and enjoyed yourselves on
Smugglers' Cove Beach, we have recently learned that real estate builders are
interested in developing the property at Smugglers' Cove Beach. Even though it
is expected to be a high-end project we just love it’s natural beauty and if you
feel the same, please let BVI planning know.
We would prefer to see the
BVI government buy the private land and make it a national park and preserve
this beach as one of the last few remaining unspoiled beaches on Tortola and in
the BVI. The proposed plans include a huge dock to destroy the coral reef,
yachts of all sizes, to pollute the now pristine crystal clear waters, and
multiple beachside villas with a private pool for each one, renting for over
$12,000 a week. So where does that leave the rest of us? What about the
beautiful coconut trees that now line this crescent shaped beauty? Why do we
have to destroy every last beach in the BVI and call it progress?
have been town meetings to allow the Tortola residents an opportunity to voice
their concerns. At this time, the BVI government has supplied an email address
for those of you who wish to voice your concern about this proposed project. .
Deadline for email submission is February 9. Your email must be
ORIGINAL. Do not copy and paste a thing from this site or
any other. Send your ORIGINAL thoughts and concerns to : firstname.lastname@example.org
By the way, if you are overseas and want to call the BVI the
cheapest way possible,
