Erosion on Negril beach is just a myth. If there was no one living there how would a person tell.Erosion is a comparsion of what the beach was like yesterday to what it looks like the next day . If Negril beach was just found/discovered today THAT'S !!!! when the erosion marker would be set. If all the hotels were up in Redground the topic of beach erosion would never be mentioned .The beach would be lovely everyday ,no complaints about walking in the water around bars and stuff like that. The sewage is the "bad guy ". When the river ran brown in days gone by ,that was nature but now it's nature with poop in it.When you are fishing/sailing etc. you can tell where the reef's come out from the shore by the shape of the land. Things like Mary's Bay pier will cause alot of damage some day.It will cause eddy's and undermine itself and cause nature to be rough on itself instead of being gentle on the shore. Storms are nature's way of having a bowel movement. The sea becomes fresh ,turning everything upside down . That is when fishing is at it's best after a storm .Nature is defoliating the bottom and sending it to shore to be used as natural fertilzer, not buried .It then grows back and the cycle starts again (or should ). Look at pics of the beach 40-50 years ago and it is so virbrant ,fed by nature. Tranquility is what's needed to keep the beach healthy. Laying back letting the human body rest in turn not making the beach work 24/7 is the key I think. Why do we need all the stuff like never ending water crafts and horse's trying there best to avoid killing people (just a matter of time ).It's the buildings that are the markers of erosion no the beach . What say you on this topic.
