The restructuring will be a big improvement. They are already about 50% complete. Previously there was a shack that served food. It was a filthy run down place that I was afraid to eat in. The bathrooms for the men was nothing more than a concrete trough with no privacy. The smell was horrible. In the past they allowed cars to drive up and down the beach. On the holidays everyone had their music at 200db as they drove up and down.What Playa Grande 'restructuring'?
A beach spoiled by those who think they know what is better for everyone else.
Besides that is just one beach (well include Sosua) that is two currently under actual renovation.
The list included 25 beaches.
And the ones I listed in post #6 are fine just like they are.
Interesting that we got people who don't even seem to goto the beach commenting on "beach improvements" based on what they heard. My opinions have been formed by what I have actually seen going to the beaches in the 🇩🇴 I have listed in post #6.
The are constructing a much nicer place for the food and souvenir vendors. It will be back away from the water, which will open up more of the beach. They have installed sewer lines for the new bathrooms and a treatment plant so the sewage will no longer go into the sand/ocean. Visitors will now have to use the parking lot that they built, and traffic will not be allowed on the beach. In the end, it will be cleaner, more quiet, better views, more usable beach to enjoy and no traffic while you are at Bar Raquel and Casa Blanca. They are doing a good job keeping the beach clean also. If you walk down the beach, you will find Cocofabuloso which has an Italian chef and some great food, service and views of the ocean. I think the restructuring was a great idea.
