Beaches and Coastlines
Antigua and Barbuda is home to 365 beaches that not only supports the tourism industry but sustains local livelihoods through fishing. Maintaining the quality of our beaches and coastlines is not only important for tourism but also for maintaining the health of our coral reefs which help to break storm surges; the productive capacity of our fishing stock, and many other ecosystems that support marine life.
Pollution to our beaches and developments too close to the shorelines threatens our livelihoods and destroys ecosystems and the many marine lives therein. It also creates an unattractive beach for residents and tourists.
