Abstract: Bedraggled Golden Bay has again been making the headlines for the wrong reasons. Unsavoury details about the new Island Hotels outpost there emerged during the public hearing held in the last week of May. These included the fact that the new hotel would be highly visible from Gnejna Bay (over the clay slopes) and that, although the new Golden Sands Hotel building would cater for the same number of beds as the original, it would be spread out over a larger footprint since it would consist of separate blocks of apartments rather than a single one. In fact, by scouring the 'old footprint' and the 'new footprint', one can roughly detect a substantial increase in the area gobbled up. It is highly ironic indeed that the decision on the new Golden Sands hotel was taken on World Environment Day (June 5).
