By Aaron Humes: The popular tourist destination Goff’s Caye in the Belize District will receive infrastructure works through the Coastal Zone Management Authority and Institute under the Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation and in partnership with the Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing.
Works include demolition of the existing pier, construction of a new pier, new palapa, new bathroom facilities for both males and females, and other amenities. Initial preparatory works have commenced with completion by October 2022. Financial support for the project is being provided under the Climate Vulnerability Reduction Program through a loan from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The infrastructure works and other upgrades will improve the visitor experience for both local and foreign visitors and will contribute significantly to the long-term sustainability of the island for present and future generations.
While the works take place the island is closed for visitation. The Ministry of Infrastructure Development and Housing and the Coastal Zone Management Authority and Institute thank the general public for their support, understanding, and patience during this time.
