The 57 new condos at St. Peter's Bay which were "officially opened" about a year and a half ago are almost always empty or very close to it. It has even come to the attention of this blogger that a British family which booked a vacation there recently cancelled and stayed elsewhere on the island when it came to their attention that they would have been the only guests on the entire compound during their stay.
Even more sad is the fact that the three massive groynes constructed to build up the beach for the condo owners are now contributing to the hastening of the destruction of the beaches downdrift of them including King Beach immediately to the south as pictured above. It is now impossible to walk the beach between the former Sandrige Hotel and Mullins Beach at high tide and very difficult even at low tide. What we have in Road View Road/Mullins is an unmitigated environmental and economic disaster that getting worse by the minute and no one is addressing it.
