Natural Resources Minister and Ninth District Representative where Virgin Gorda is located, Vincent Wheatley said The Baths and Devil’s Bay on Virgin Gorda will reopen to the public ‘soon’ after undergoing several enhancements.
The locations were named as the only two beaches remain closed to residents when all others reopened on May 10.
Wheatley, in the meantime, recently visited the sister island’s attractions to assess the progress of works so far.
In a video documenting the trip on Sunday, he said: “I must say I am very pleased with the repairs that I have seen so far and the enhancements of the rest stops, the gazebos, the new trails and the expanded trails.”
The district representative said he believed the much-needed repairs and enhancements would also be pleasing to residents.
“When you come back to The Baths, you too will be very pleased with the enhancements we have done just for your visiting experience,” he stated.
While residents are now able to access most beaches across the territory, those privileges come with restrictions.
The beaches are only open from 6 am to 1 pm daily, and animals are prohibited from being on the beach or in the water.
The beaches will be policed by a Beach Monitoring Task Force during the allotted time to enforce social distancing practising and prevent any large gatherings.
