A similar thing has happened in Playa Bonita in Las Terrenas. Yet we have all these people saying climate change isn't happening and won't affect DR.
Beaches have come and gone worldwide for centuries. Don't start with Climate Change.
When a beach appears where none was do claim that is proof of no climate change?
Playa Grande comes and goes every year.
Part of the year it's sandy, part of the year it is rocky.
Is Climate Change seasonal there?
This might explain it with less drama :

Some are blaming nearby Punta Catalina. They think the many massive pilings did something to the seabed that changed the flow of the sea. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Or it could have something to do with the Venucians?
They are in fact living and working among us.

Playa Poppy diminished in size after the last hurricane that skimmed the area several years ago. It's so small and narrow in comparison to its glory days

We noticed the beaches in Las Ballenas - where we live -some areas are a bit steeper/have a steeper slope. Very different than before - in some areas
I walk there regularly these days and I see it recovering a bit. So there is still hope.
