A local community organisation has launched a new initiative to create a ‘Safe Swim Zone’ along the south shore of Grand Bahama for the protection of visitors and residents alike.

The Rotary Club of Grand Bahama Sunrise has taken on a project that will enhance the tourist experience and make it just a little bit safer for everyone on Grand Bahama.

Members have embarked on a project to create a Safe Swim Zone all along the island’s southern coast by creating a distinct separation between boaters and jet ski operators on one side of the surf and swimmers on the other.

Over recent months, the project took Rotarians door-to-door of beachfront residences and businesses to help raise the funds required to purchase the materials and equipment needed to establish the safe swimming area. The funds will also continue the Rotary Club’s extensive year-round community support efforts.
