CAYE CAULKER INFRA-STRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS NEEDED FOR THE TOURIST PACKAGE.
CAYE CAULKER LAZY LIZARD BAR, by the cut through the island.
TRIP ADVISOR VOTES HAD CAYE CAULKER ONE OF THE TOP TEN RECOMMENDED TOURIST ISLANDS IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
The LAZY LIZARD by the CUT through the island of Caye Caulker is re-doing their sea wall. Tourists who used to sun bathe and swim in the cut ( lots of them ) are now forced out on to the cement broken sea wall. I noticed this past month, that the sea wall is 4 to 5 feet higher than the sea. They, the tourists are having a lot of trouble getting into and out of the water, over the last month. It is the only decent bathing spot in the town and island.
IT SHOULD BE A PRIORITY FOR THE CAYE CAULKER TOWN COUNCIL TO BUILD A SET OF STAIRS, OR MORE THAN ONE, ALONG THAT CEMENT SEA WALL FOR TOURISTS.
EASILY BUILT ARTICIAL REEF IN CAYE CAULKER
The mangroves that used to attract tourists snorkeling by the channel, or cut in the island have gone this year. Been removed for sea wall improvements. With the removal, went the habitat of several hundred grunts and snappers that attracted fish and tourists snorkeling. The area is barren now.
As a tourist attraction, the Caye Caulker Town Council, need to place some artificial reef around the split, and sea walls. Mangrove branch tips, held in place by 2 foot long 3/8" rebar with a bend in them, to hold them on the bottom, would attract hundreds of fish and make for a tourist attraction. Both for snorkelers and for casting fishermen.
Another way of doing it, would be to use plastic snow fence rolls. Roll a 30 ft, long 5 ft wide plastic snow fence, length wise. With mangrove branch tips inside it, and anchor them down along the sides of the shallows, or sea wall. Hundreds of small fish would be attracted and it would provide a good tourist draw, for the tourist community.
