The developers of Blue Horizon resort, the Witts, bought 50 acres surrounding ”Mudjin Harbour” in 1991. The first structure was the metal storage building near the road. There was nothing here and all the roads and utilities had to be constructed. In 1995, the main house ”Simpatica” was completed along with the two cottages to each side. Next was the ”Whale Watch” house, 3 more cottages, the ”Stargazer” house, and then ‘Seawings”. In 2007. The resort was sold and they moved to their house on the hill in 2008. The new owner asked Mike Witt to design and build the Mudjin Bar and Grill which opened in 2013.

In order to walk to the beach, the first path was the one leading from the main house past where Mudjin Bar and Grill is now located. Building the paths takes time and only about 10 feet a day was completed. The surface stones from the beach, concrete, etc. all had to be transported by wheelbarrow. In order to relax in the ”Beach Cave”, concrete supports were poured and large rough cut planks attached to the tops. The next path lead from the main house out to the bluff over the ”Beach Cave” On this scenic spot, the stone benches were built. Mike Witt really liked building paths and his wife did ask one day about how many more paths? Anyway, the work continued.

The only way to reach the ”Hidden Beach” just to the west of the main beach was to swim around the bluffs. In 1999, one of the guest came up to the office with an interesting story. After swimming to the “Hidden Beach”, he managed to wiggle up through a passage to the top of the bluff. Further investigation showed that this was only possible with a lot of scrapes and struggling. However, it looked like it could be opened up a bit and stairs at the top and bottom would be possible. Then, most people could descend and see this beautiful beach with its cave, stalactites, and view to the sea. The construction used generators, electric jackhammer, portable mixers, and a lot wheelbarrow trips along the path built to the entrance. It took about 3 months to complete. The stairs were designed with epoxy coated rebar and should be strong enough to survive the large waves that crash all the way into the back of the cave during hurricanes.
