Playa Linda & Moomba Beach Restoration
Aruba will start a big project soon to revitalize and restore the beaches between Playa Linda Beach Resort and Moomba Beach. The contractor in charge of this is Varadero Aruba, a local market leader in dredging. Their activities include the construction and maintenance of ports and waterways, coastal defense and land reclamation. They also provide related engineering and other specialist services, such as, soil improvement and land remediation.
The project is one that has been in the planning for nearly 2 years because of the damage by hurricane Matthew back in 2016. Revitalize and restoring of the beach means taking away the built up mud like sand in certain locations and pumping new fresh sand. The entire beach area to be restored will be divided by 6 areas and will be closed off by gates and signs to warn beach visitors. The project should be completed within 6 months.
