A Natural Beach:
Our beach is a "natural beach", maintained by tides and weather. At any given time there may be driftwood, and small to large amounts of sargassum seaweed and other plant life washed up on the beach. Natural materials provide nourishment and stablility to the beach. We do rake the beach in cases of excessive build-up of seaweed or debris.
Seaweed has been washing in daily since mid-May. The amount is excessive. The tide has not been high enough to push it far enough on shore to be collected.
We are getting as close as allowable with our equipment but still much remains. It is not possible to walk across the seaweed to reach the water without sinking into the silt created by the deteriorating seaweed. Please consider this before you make reservations. We will update when conditions improve.
