Do beaches other than hotel beaches still have sand?

I looked at some of the pictures of the island on line, looks like the hotels are all up and running again, but some beach clubs (Uvas and Corona) have just rock left over instead of beach. Is this right and if so, will the beach clubs replace their sand or is just the hotels do that? Also, looks like some foliage was killed, not just lost greenery, how is that looking in non hotel areas? Thanks for the update!

famoffour---the places you are referring to didn't have THAT much "beach" to begin with and Mother Nature will put it back bit by bit...........the hotels that you are reading about trucking in sand are filling in their "fake" beaches which means that they are areas behind sea walls..............nobody is trucking in sand on regular beaches...........again, that will happen on its own.

As far as the foliage..........yes.......a lot was lost but there are signs of green sprouting everywhere and once we get into the rainy season, then things will go crazy growing again.........many places have planted new cocos which will take off like wildfire after they get some rain........you'll see!!!

Uva's and Corona never had sandy beaches. The east side is 17 miles of spectacular beaches, with paved road.
