Guam Visitors Bureau recently announced the installation of updated signs to highlight the importance of beach and water safety practices in a bid to improve in-island safety for tourists.
A main economic driver for the US island territory, GVB has been at the forefront of improving the experience of tourists, whether it be in holding festivals or events that highlight Guam’s unmatched duty-free shopping, culture, scenic beaches, or public safety – especially for tourists.
“It was time to replace the previous outdated signs and update beach and water safety information in 6 different languages,” said GVB general manager Karl Pangelinan.
“This project has been in the works for the last several months and GVB is proud to see it through completion. We encourage our local residents and guests to use the provided safety tips and be aware of the color coded safety flags when planning a beach day,” said Pangelinan.
Beach and water safety signs have been installed around Governor Joseph Flores Memorial Beach Park and Matapang Beach. Another sign will be erected at Gun Beach in the coming weeks.
