The diagrams below show an island before and after the addition of tourist facilities.
Summarise the information in the maps and make comparisons where appropriate.
The diagram shows an island that is approximately 900 meters wide and 300 meters across before and after its development into a tourist resort.
Before being developed the island was unpopulated apart from a few palm trees and had a beach on the northwest side of the island.
After development, the island has a pier and reception centre built on its southern shore. In addition, a number of small sailing boats are available for transport or leisure. On the western side of the pier and reception centre is a small park that also overlooks the sea. On the opposite (north) side of the island is a combined restaurant and leisure centre.
On the western end of the island are 8 huts that are close to the beach and surrounded by trees. The eastern end of the island is protected by trees and contains a group of six huts and a children’s playground. This area allows family groups and couples to have separate areas so they do not disturb each other
