    Protect it. Don’t install tourist attractions that would damage the vegetation or grounds. Once you let people in they will destroy it. Guaranteed. What studies have been done to protect the wildlife that live there? The vegetation? These things live there and should be protected. The island is too small and beautiful to let people destroy another area forever. There are plenty of other attractions on the island for tourist, including the most beautiful beaches in the world. Save this space. Protect it.
