A special monument is planned as a landmark for the East End, based on the legend of the Bermuda Triangle.

The Bermuda Tourism Authority has called on local artists and architects to create a “fun, interactive and iconic” piece for Clearwater Beach as an added draw for tourists.

The Bermuda Triangle attraction would bring camera carrying visitors to the beach for “social media moments that help further promote Bermuda to the world,” according to Pat Phillip-Fairn, the BTA’s chief product and experiences development officer.

The authority posted a Request for Proposal online today for the landmark, which should tally with Clearwater’s appeal to young families and visitors who enjoy eco-adventure. Submissions should develop those characteristics as well as being sensitive to the environment.

The Triangle is a distinctive feature of the island’s brand, Ms Phillip-Fairn said.

The RFP requests designs for an “iconic” structure to become “one of the island’s most sought landmarks in the East End” — on a par with St David’s Lighthouse or the Unfinished Church.

Submissions should be sent in by May 3, but those intending to submit are asked to notify the BTA by e-mail before April 7.
