resort boost — with plans to develop water chalets, hotels and
commercial properties there.

There is a short stretch of seafront covered with hips of sea shells, but alas broken sea shells. This is the location of sea shell collection point of a few sea food sellers who also "process" their sea foods before selling to merchants from as far as Kota Kinabalu. After they collected the live sea shells from boat fishermen from the island, they "process" by breaking the shells and keep only the fresh shell meat in a bucket. The broken shells are dump at the site and over years the whole stretch turn into a sea shells shore.
