Reading this made me second guess booking a trip to Negril for the beginning of November. Will there be a beach by then?? I don't know if we should go ahead with it and help the economy and tourist industry or go somewhere else where I know the beach is beautiful.

Presently, most of the negril beach (beach)is gone. Yes, its gonna take awhile for it to come back, wtih some spot worst than other.
PERSONALLY, i will not book anyone to go to Negril, whether for a stay at an All-inclusive or a property that is not All-Inclusive. THERE'S NO BEACH.
There are no roads for anyone to travel in a safe mode.
There are no excursion trip taking place. THERE can't be any. Right now, there are LOT OF BEGGERS down there.
FURTHERMORE, THE SEA IS A DANGER ZONE, as all the fishing pots, laid by fishermen WERE washed away. Housetop/roofs/ rocks other large objects that had blown over into the sea are and had become DEATHTRAP.
THUS: Snorkling is dangereous.
- Deep-sea diving is dangerous.
- DEEP-SEA fishing is dangerous.
- SWIMMING is dangerous, as one minute you are standing in two feet of water and the next minute your are going down in 10 feet of water.
Hotels should not expect their staff members to volunteer their time, and without any compensation. My opinion of course.
However for those of you who wants the truth; i will tell it. i love my country, i love negril. I want people to be safe. After all, to have survived the terrible hurricane, only to loose your life over stupidity is no excuse.
The sea and especially the beac area around Negril IS A DANGER ZONE RIGHT NOW. There's no beach to speak of.
