WILLEMSTAD — After a recent redecoration public beach Play Parasasa (popularly called the Sonesta beach) held a festive opening last Friday. Performances of the bands Cache Royal and ERA added luster to the opening that evening.
The area was redecorated extensively the past months. For instance the parking area of the Parasasa beach was replaced with a concrete parking lot, the stones were removed from the sea, the beach was raised and the intention announced to place kiosks in the area. The beach is to remain open to the public. This redecoration work, involving an amount of 750,000 guilders, was done through Fundashon Bon Intenshon from Gregory Elias and initiator of the Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival, before the festival began. The new parking lot formed part of the festival area. Executive Vittorio de Stefano held a lengthy speech during the festive opening last Friday.
According to a press report from former minister of Traffic, Transport and Regional Planning, Charles Cooper (MAN) of mid July, the executive known from the World Trade Center was involved with the investment of the redecoration of the area, amounting to over 1 million guilders. On the festive opening last Friday, spokesperson of Bon Intenshon, Percy Pinedo remarked on Facebook: “Fundashon Bon Intenshon invested 750,000 guilders in this beach, while the government and De Stefano hadn’t invested a penny. I don’t meddle in politics, nor do I use projects from Fundashon Bon Intenshon for political purposes.” De Stefano was not available for comment today.
