The “Beach” is Back

sand dollar bonaire beach areaWe’re happy to let folks know that our “beachette” is once again an enjoyable presence on the south end of the property. The sandy area had practically disappeared for a few weeks after a storm late in 2016.

However between the use of a crane (under the supervision of the Marine Park) and mother nature we were able to get all the stone off the beach, giving us back this little slice of paradise. The area is back to being enjoyed for lounging as well as providing yet another option to access Bari Reef.
