It is surprising how rapid the progress has been since the last time. Lots of Sargassum this month. And now the wall and stairs at Prendy's is starting to give way despite all their attempts to re-in-force it. All these shops need to move back away from the shoreline but I am sure it is gonna cost a pretty pen to relocate them.

Hellshire Beach, Portmore Jamaica.

  1. There were no regulations from the onset at this beautiful beach..which was UDC owned along with other Hellshire areas.There was total disregard for the planning of this area. UDC, with all it's Planners, must have know what would happen if there were no regulations in place in the utilization of the beach. No one cared. The users didn't understand the impact of building there structures out there, in the manner they did. And no-one stepped in to stop them & explain anything to them. Now everyone loses with the erosion of this once beautiful local beach, those who go to the beach & they vendors. So sad.
