The Ministry of Economic Development and Tourism is today reiterating Government’s commitment that Gates Beach, more commonly referred to as Fort St Catherine Beach, will remain open and accessible to the public.

“The Ministry wishes to remind the public that this is a public beach and that the developers are aware this and supportive of its use by all.  The Ministry and developers remain open to keep the St George’s residents and their constituency Members of Parliament apprised as the development progresses”
