There is no indication that anyone will be affected by the closure of Sandpearc resort, the statement said, adding that Sandpearf resort was already fully operational.
Some of the resort’s most popular attractions include the Sandcastle, a large sandcastle constructed of wood and mud, with a top speed of about 20mph, and the Sandman, a sand castle that is designed to be towed by boats and has a top rate of up to 25mph.
Signed by BVI Governor John Mackay, the closure was announced on Monday morning.
A number of beaches in the resort are closed, including Sandsea, which is home to sand crabs and other animals.
