The Beach is not only the beginning, but it is the Golden Goose of our Country!! Not only this but our beaches are the healthiest place to be!
The reason why tourists come here are because of our beaches! This beach curfew needs to be revised immediately as it is severely flawed! There are tourists here now that this new beach curfew will impact, they are expecting to use the beach every day!!
This sudden decision makes for bad reviews and vlogs on booking websites and social media and is very bad for future business!!
This is how to definitely kill our Tourism product for the remainder of the season if not for the remainder of the COVID-19 story! Tourists will simply go elsewhere!
Especially now before our busy high season months when Tourists are still choosing their winter getaway vacations!!
Already all and every tourist is tested negative and vaccinated anyway prior entering the country!!
Do you think tourists will want to come here with all the expensive testing requirements, additional tourism taxes being implemented from October 1st, zero choice of open restaurants with seated dining and a in addition a 8pm curfew as well??!!
There are lots of other Caribbean Islands tourists can choose to visit, there is no need for tourists to choose this Island for their winter vacation where is it becoming common place that Government is beginning to make seemingly irrational and sporadic decisions!!
The fact that people were caught on beaches/ party vessels and or on their way to or on offshore Islands has nothing to do with the rest of our Tourism Product overall, that is for the police/coast guard to manage fine them and even lock the relevant operators down if necessary!
If you want to keep our Tourism a much better solution must be found, or tourists will most certainly go elsewhere!!
It’s as simple as Keep the beaches Open during the day at least!!! Delta is already here it’s not going anywhere it’s already too late we can’t let that destroy our Tourism we just have to ride the wave and keep going just like every other country.
The Minister on the radio this morning mentions we may be facing moving to the UK Amber list does the honorable Minister realize this system is being scrapped within weeks?!!
