    Yeah... we've been watching the cameras at CDM and you can't help but notice how wide the beach is.
    I remember last year that very same beach eroding to the point where the palapas by the building, yes, that far up on the beach,
    were collapsing and falling into the water. At that point, the Tamarijn beach was the complete opposite.

    Mother Nature's give and take I guess.

    thanks
    that drop off from beach to the water is significant!
    must be a bit tough getting in and out.

    Have never seen photo's of the beach between Divi/Tamarijn eroded so far back. Those palapas have normally located been better than 100 yards from the surf line. Similar to the erosion Near Bucutti 5 years back. Thinking this weather/surf pattern has overstayed its welcome.

    j/m...are you speaking about the first photo? i too thought the same and then i wondered if it was the angle of which the photo was taken. i have only been to that beach a few times (when we stayed at the Tamarijn we used the beach near the bunker bar) and it was quite a hike to the water. the palapas were set back pretty close to the road.
    anyway, per this photo, it certainly looks like the water's edge has come up a long way. and that step off is treacherous!!

    2nd or 3rd photo, both show similar proximity. Palapas are are just a short distance from the roadway. Remembering the year I referenced near Bucutti, they had a ladder leaning up against the bank to allow guests to get down to the surf line. Have a photo somewhere in my archives. Also remembering a year prior to Tamarijn installing all of the rocks, the high surf took out a large portion of the pool deck. Hang around long enough and you'll see everything imaginable.

    the beach in front of the divi doesn't have the step/dropped sand edge but some coral as you go in to the sea so watch out!

    oh...and by the way the beach beyond the bunker (blocks 17-25) is much better, flat and easy to get in and out of, there is also some coral in places as you go in.

    Watching Casa del Mar the past 2 days I have noticed a long awaited change in the surf/wave direction. Have regular rollers from a westerly direction that have increased in size the past 2 days. Although not nice for those currently trying to enter/exit the water, I'm expecting that nature is in the process of rebuilding Druif Beach.��
