Can anyone let me know what is going on with the beach at Banyan Bay. I have seen a few pictures of the beach and it looks like they are building a sea wall.

I'm not sure where you saw those pictures but there is no sign of a sea wall being built. Lovely beach as always. Actually it was particularly lovely today.

I believe its on the southside, right now it looks more like a jetty.

A friend of my parents who lives on the island sent them. They were taken yesterday afternoon. The pictures look like they have three or four deep of sand bags along the sea.

On either side of the "jetty" the beach is lined with large sand bags. Looks like the are trying to save what beach is left.

I went down to Banyan Bay yesterday to have a look and I must correct myself. I hadn't gone far enough north on the beach. There is something going on there Tiona. Not sure what it is. I would hazard a guess that they are fighting erosion. They have built two stone things that look like they may be the beginnings of another artificial reef, but maybe not. They have also done major sand bagging near the restaurant. I hope they don't put in sea wall there.
