About the Creation of this Site

The concept of came together one night at a local establishment. Some of the usual crowd had gathered for sunset at the bar and a conversation between two local business owners started. They were soon joined by a third and then a fourth when the conversation once again turned to a web site for Treasure Beach. Before long some core ideas had been identified:

  • For small businesses with limited funds for advertising, a single Internet presence makes the most sense.
  • Accurately represent the area by portraying Treasure Beach's true nature as a community, not just individual businesses.
  • Act as a guide book providing correct and up-to-date information for every budget.
  • Have advertising rates affordable enough to include the whole community from plush villas to quaint rum bars.

One of the conversation's participants started the project, then realized its scope and depth required another mind. So a partnership was formed. Over the next three months the two spent long hours typing their combined Treasure Beach knowledge into this web site. Local organizations and friends were consulted. Guide books were referenced. Kittens were born under the computer desk. Pictures were scanned. All while courageously resisting the call of the sea and sun. And thus the pages before you were created.
