When I was last staying here a couple of years ago there was a nice beach bordering the beach front buildings. Now no more beach. The ocean is crashing into walls and they have put up sandbags all over to try to save the crumbling concrete beach walls. Going a little east to main Cabarete beach, the beach appears to have shrunk in half. Climate change, permanent change? Do they have a plan to save the remaining beach? No beach, no tourism $.
