Pier construction near Sosúa by the Sea
Valetta Holding SRL is currently constructing a pier on the coast of Sosúa.
The pier is situated just past the bend near Sosúa by the Sea. The intention is that the pier, as a breakwater, influences the gulf stream, preventing the coral reefs from being buried by the entrained sand during storms. According to ecologist Gabriela Rosa of the Maguá Ecological Foundation, the resulting lagoon will stimulate coral growth and provide a breeding ground for young fish and invertebrates. Valetta Holding, a company that develops tourism projects in the northern area, is committed to the environment and the sustainable development of the country. The director of the Maguá Ecological Foundation explained that the proposal to build a breakwater not only allows this coastal structure to protect the coast, but also to preserve and further develop marine species.
