Abstract: After the brouhaha that followed the heavy-handed works at Ramla l-Ħamra, where a bulldozer was called in to excavate a substantial part of the beach to bury large stones and rocks, one would have expected the Gozo Ministry to tread more carefully with regard to other Gozitan beaches. But barely two months have passed and it seems the ministry has learned no lessons from the debacle at Ramla l-Ħamra. On the feast of Santa Marija, August 15, a mechanical shovel was called in to, according to the most recent press release by the Gozo Ministry, clear San Blas Bay from ‘alka’ (in fact, it was beached seagrass, rather than algae, as the ministry claimed).
