Kelver DarrouxParliamentary representative of the St. Joseph constituency Kelvar Darroux has issued a challenge to the ministry of tourism to make a greater effort at developing water sports on the island, particularly in his constituency.Mr. Darroux, who addressed a mini trade show which was organized by the Dominica Community Tourism Association in Mero at the weekend, noted that the development of water sports will help in providing fun activities and opportunities for the tourist.According to him, this is one “new initiative” which can be developed with a view to enticing more visitors to Dominica.“One of the initiatives that I am proposing to you is that of water sport and I believe here on the beach in Mero. We can look at putting a program in place that can encourage tourist to take part in water sports, whatever it may be; it may be waterskiing, it may be kayaking”. View of Mero Beach. Photo credit: travelblog.orgDarroux said this is just one of the many areas which could assist in providing more activities for the visitors.“This is one of the things that I believe that we have to build upon to ensure that we have greater numbers of tourist coming to our shores, because we have to provide the opportunities, we have to provide the tourist with the services that they require so that when they come to our shores they can enjoy themselves”.He also proposed that a “Fish Night” on the Mero Beach could be another way of attracting more locals and at the same time generate revenue for the community.“I believe Mero would be the perfect location for that [fish night] and this is something that I would support to ensure that we have a greater number of locals coming to the beach on a weekend. We can have a fish night here in Mero and have some nice music, invite a reggae band and we will have persons coming to parade the beach and spending money and bringing greater economic benefits here in the community of Mero”.He also explained that the “Fish Night” could take the form of a similar event which is held in St. Lucia every Friday night, highlighting that there needs to be “greater use of the beach”.Dominica Vibes Newscenter_img Share Share LocalNews Tourism ministry challenged to develop water sports by: – May 29, 2012last_img read more
