Eco Cuba-holidays at Protected Beaches in the north at Ciego de Avila
For the protection of Cuba holidays and its pristine beach-beauty a group of activist is taking action to protect the coastal system of the northern coasts of Ciego de Avila. Eco-Cuba holidays are on the horizon with the construction of gangplanks on pivots that will run from the Cuba hotels on the region to the adjacent beaches. And this is just one of the main actions that will take place with the aim of protecting the Cuban beach eco-system and mitigate the adverse effects of climate change and how it could negatively affect the popularity of beach Cuba holidays.
Works are guided to ease and reduce the rate at which climatic change may affect the north coast of the Avilanian territory, where the Jardines del Rey (King's Gardens) tourist resort is located, one of the most popular and most visited Cuba holidays spot.
Experts of the Coastal Ecosystems Research Centre in Cayo Coco, together with other government organisations, carry out several tasks to protect the environment of Cuba holidays, as Zúñiga, the director of the centre, explains himself:
“That is why we mainly focus our attention on the beach sectors. Some have already been recovered and we also encourage cleaning and adequate sand use."
Zúñiga explained how they had been engaged in improving the coastal areas for four years, since the coastline went back up to three meters due to sea erosion, in some areas.
He added that the main task is being made at Pilar Beach in Guillermo Key, where the recovery actions are conducted with sustainable procedures. That beach is considered one of the most beautiful in Cuba.
"In that place the tasks are mainly oriented to preserve the highest dunes in the Insular Caribbean, with 15 meters high, and also vegetation ", Zúñiga added.
"In both islands the paths to the sand dunes were closed, since free access has caused undesirable soil compression, and instead some interpretive paths have been activated to also protect flora", he further explained.
These actions integrate a Biodiversity Conservation project sponsored by the United Nations, implemented in the Sabana-Camagüey archipelago, to develop sustainable tourism, fishing, agriculture and forestry ", he said.
Acknowledging the importance of Cuba holidays and the tourist development of the region, further repair work will continue to address problem areas. Tourism for Cuba holidays in this area is based upon the physical environment and ambiance of high ecological and landscape values and, with several beaches of coral origin, showing their singular beauty and excellent conservation state.
