Yes, it has been for awhile and cleaner than ever.

Heading down Monday, good to hear that the water quality is back, any comment/update on what restaurants are open and/or state of repair of the other establishments as a whole?

Myett's is open with a very limited menu from lunch til 7ish ( good pizza!). Paradise seems to be open sporadically and that is all on the Bay. Note the amazingElmtones now play Saturdays at Myett's from 5 til 7 ( but often go much longer). They are packing the place so get there early.

The Elm posted that they don't have a set opening date yet. Elvet had a container of building materials shipped from Miami a few months ago and it somehow disappeared into the abyss.

Will be down in a week. Assuming that Quito's isn't rebuilt yet. Is he playing anywhere?

Quito's won't be open until the fall, I asked if he was playing anywhere and I was told "just at home". We are going to miss hear him this year.

Are there any security/safety issues in CGB?

Myett's also does a BBQ on Tuesdays 6pm-9pm that offers ribs, chicken, fish, and lobster. Rhymers is open and serving at least breakfast and lunch. Paradise Club and Irma Shack (roadside version of Paradise) is open and has lunch and dinner (best pizza and ribs at CGB).

Columbus Sun Set bar and convenient store is back open and has a decent local following.

No security/safety issues that we've seen.

Cheers,
Jason

We are heading down in April and are wondering if any of the cruise ship passengers are carted over to CGB from the port.

We can't wait to be back!

So far the ship passengers have been going to Brandywine Bay and Long Bay, Beef Island. A few passengers that know about CGB have been coming over but the standard tours and beach trips are skipping CGB.
