While the area surrounding the beach still shows destruction from Hurricane Irma, the water was crystal clear and warm. Walking along the waters edge watching the waves roll in was post card picture perfect. Clean area and people on the beach were very friendly.

Everything, including sturdy buildings, sleeping shelters and stone structures, and lots of trees was destroyed and nothing has been repaired. No repairs were even underway.

We were vacationing there last spring and summer. We met some friends and it is a real struggle for them because they survive and count on the tourism. We love that place and hope to be back soon!,
