Authorities of an administrative area in Da Nang have submitted a proposal to the central city's administration for a seaward beach enlargement aimed at improving the local environment and tourist activity.
The reason for the plan is that the ten-kilometer long beach stretching along Nguyen Tat Thanh, the local coastal street, accumulates a large quantity of trash every year, Nguyen Van Tinh, head of the administration of Thanh Khe District, said on Friday.
This waste causes pollution, requires high cleaning-up costs and hampers the growth of tourism in the area, he said.
The last effect was also mentioned by Nguyen Thanh Quang, secretary of the Thanh Khe District Committee, who said the full tourist potential of the beach has not been realized.
He clarified that this coastal interface shrinks considerably in width whenever the tide rises; and despite its length, it is dotted only with more than ninety spots selling sugarcane juice and several hotels.
The Da Nang administration has shown signs of bolstering tourism in Thanh Khe , as evidenced by a sea dyke at the mouth of Phu Loc River they have built in the district to prevent sand loss.
Also included in the above proposal is revamping Nguyen Tat Thanh Street, a suggestion that the city-level officials already gave green light to in 2016, said the district chief Tinh.
