To date, 5000 cubic meters of sand have been excavated from the Ramlet El Baida beach by Achour Development in preparation of their upcoming project "Eden Rock" private beach resort. (For decades, Ramlet El Baida has been the site of raw sewage dumping, making it unfit for swimming.) The irreplaceable sands were transported and stocked in Choueifat in containers belonging to a company owned by Jihad Al-Arab, along with sand from Costa Brava.
