My neighbor in Opal was saying that the goverment is going to remove all of them on the beach's. This is really sad.
Oh no! I love the palapas! Is it a liaability issue or what? Doesn't make sense to me. It would make it much harder to find much-needed shade.

Well sorry to say that you guys have misunderstood. It is not Nikki Beach, the chain with multiple locations. It is Nikky Beach, which is owned by Dutch people and this is their first and only location.
But it is still a very cool place they are building there.

And regarding the palapas it seems like it is a big "bust" by the DOW.
It is all the "structures" on the beach that they want to remove. The umbrellas and the lounge beds too. Also the big pirate ship (from Morgans) that they placed there for the kids to play on.
It will be interesting to follow, because it is a direct action to the law that you cannot place palapas and other permanent features on the beaches (which are all public) and claim them to be private.
So now we will see if they will back down at their demands towards Nikky or follow through along the other beaches.
