Local fishermen and farmers realised that major business people from other places were creating their island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they also, immediately started to open their own businesses to fulfill all the clienteles demands.
This was the same year that the 1st settlers laid claim to a large part of land on which is now known as Sairee Beach.
KoToa's status expanded and rapidly increased as it generally became known throughout the world through adventurous visitors and international travellers.
Consequently, as its reputation for beautiful nature, unique marine life and beautiful landscapes got bigger, easier access was made available as soon as newer built were brought in to handle the large number of visitors being attracted to the island.
Arrivals and departures were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common practice, so back to the hammock and the world of dreams, the boat will come another day.
