A comparison of the physical layout of an island before and after the construction of specific tourist facilities is depicted in the given maps.

Overall, it is clear that the island was upgraded to facilitate the visit and stay of more tourists with these developments.

It is clear from the first map that the island was uninhabited, and the only specific tourist attraction was a beach towards its west.

The first visible facility which was added as a part of tourism development was the construction of a pier to facilitate tourists who arrive from yachts. The pier has access to the reception, which is located almost 15m away from the shore. A vehicle track surrounds the reception and connects it to the pier and a restaurant at the north.

The next major upgradation was the construction of the accommodation facilities. These are seen proximal to the reception, one towards the west and other towards the east, which can facilitate more tourists. Footpath interconnects the accommodation and connects to the beach, which now has a swimming facility.
