ramessses: The beach in Sosua will not be made private. That is not going to happen. That was never a part of the plans and is not today. The government has even been gifted more land, the land in the area of the casitas in a recent ceremony, so that land is not even private for a distance behind the 60 meter mark which is already public and was never private property. So it does matter and will continue to matter for the people of Sosua and others that use the beach in the future.
