Crystal Lagoons to boost Nigeria tourism

Crystal Lagoons is a multinational water-innovation company, developer of sustainable and limitless in size pristine clear lagoons.

The company’s technology can bring the idyllic lifestyle of the beach anywhere in the world at very low construction and maintenance costs.

Cape Town, December 2017: In just a few weeks since the announcement of  the new Crystal Lagoons revolutionary concept, Public Access Lagoons, the company is now engaged in discussions in Nigeria to create Africa’s first Public Access Lagoon, one that can unlock huge revenue potential.

Minister of Information and Culture, as well as the Director General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation in Nigeria, have established that Public Access Lagoons are a key differentiating element for Nigerian tourism in terms of creating new forms of revenue generation as they seek to retain outbound foreign currency and promote a greater contribution to Nigeria’s GDP from the domestic tourism sector.

While the first Nigerian PAL Discussion is under way, with an estimated construction start date in the last quarter of 2018; and with a total investment of up to 11 million USD, Crystal Lagoons has already started dialogue in identifying and assessing key sites for future suitability for developing and operating multiple Public Access Lagoons, that are aimed at being rolled out in the relatively short term.

The World Travel and Tourism Council estimates that in 2016 alone Nigerian travellers spent US$1.4 billion abroad. Through the unique concept and technology of Crystal Lagoons, the Nigerian authorities now have a solution to reverse this outflow of currency.

Nigeria’s tourism opportunity

With a proposed 3.1 hectare PAL; estimated to receive over 240 000 visitors a year, there are countless social and leisure benefits to having an idyllic beach lifestyle offered (and open) to the public. Along with new sources of income, the opportunities for generating employment around the establishment of a Crystal Lagoons Public Access Lagoon are numerous, both directly and indirectly.

Alastair Sinclair, Crystal Lagoons Regional Director for Africa says:  “Plans are progressing well and what’s so encouraging is how Nigeria’s tourism department sees the benefit of creating beautiful venues around water where people can spend their leisure time.  Currently, stats show Nigerians travel further afield to enjoy water activities and this is why a Public Access Lagoon that generates revenue would be so attractive for the country. We have seen that within the country’s theme parks, the water attractions are not only the most popular but are also the biggest revenue drivers.  And yet more exciting is that this state of the art development could set the scene for more Public Access Lagoons in other parts of Nigeria and also Africa.” Not only does this concept provide employment, it unlocks a whole new array of revenue generating activities as well as contributing to the activation of services related to the tourism sector.

The Positive Plan

The Federal Government’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan has ambitious goals in place to turn Nigeria into one of the major tourism destinations in Africa. This plan will possibly increase the number of visitors to Nigeria by 10% a year, help conserve foreign exchange and increase the volume of domestic tourism.  Sinclair adds: “We are currently evaluating a partnership with the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation’s “Tour Nigeria” brand. This partnership seeks to promote Nigeria as a tourism destination, and give its own citizens new options for domestic tourism.”

Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
