    I hope those in the Tourism Sector are paying attention and don't allow our islands and islands’ beaches to become too polluted with mass overcrowding. Everything should be done in moderation. Quality tourists come here for the natural beauty of our islands, and they are welcomed as some of “the most unspoiled, with some of the best beaches on the planet (Fox News Travel).” They were bestowed to us by nature and they are already perfect, so let us do our best to Respect them. For those of us with some standard of Pride, please educate the others that our islands and islands’ beaches should be preserve and treated as clean and tidy as your homes.

      This is why looking at other islands is equally important. Tourists want natural unspoiled beaches. How can that be maintained when Natural Resources and Labour is giving out vendors licenses to set up on places like Smugglers?
      How many food vendors are needed for a small beach? Do people go to the beach to go shopping for clothes or jewelry? Years ago, when there was trouble, there were 6 vendors. That is too much and chases visitors off.
      VG is not the only BVI that gets written up in travel magazines. Let's protect ALL beaches for future generations.

    Yea all we need now is better infrastructure for example; better roads especially leading to the Baths & Coppermine, access running water 24 Hours a day, upgraded port of entry and so forth in order to preserve this beautiful island.

    Yes indeed, I visit the BVI twice a year on vacation. And one of my favorite places to visit is the Baths. There is something about the Baths that makes you want to be there all the time.
