Nearly 50 Years On, a Forbidden Seaside Ghost Town is about to Re-Open

quote [ magine a millionaire’s resort; one to rival St. Tropez, Italy’s Portofino, or Miami’s South Beach – abandoned overnight. Imagine the luxury hotels suddenly emptied of their guests and left to slowly decay, the boutiques, bars and nightclubs reclaimed by nature, sunbathers replaced by sea turtles nesting on the deserted beaches and the once vibrant holiday spirit silenced; nothing more than a whisper in the wind. ]

Of some old ghost town

After 50 years of peace, a reclaimed sea turtle nesting ground is about to be overrun with tourists.

I've been there and looked through the fences. My native guide warned me not to take pictures or get near the fences, and pointed out the security cameras all over the place. It was incredibly creepy.
