We are going to the island next week and have heard from the people we are renting from that the sand is slowly coming back to the beaches.

There really isn't a beach in front of The Fred. It's a wall with a breakwater ... but you can climb down and snorkel from there to the pier providing there aren't any cruise ships. There are some small areas with sand that would be comfortable but not a large beach. Just down the road a little ways is Rainbow Beach and it's looking fine from very recent pics on FB from Rhythms on Rainbow Beach. Check out Rhythms on FB to see the pics.

Check out Cottages by the sea and Sandcastles on the beach Facebook pages. Both indicate the sand is returning ....especially for some reason more sand over the past several days🙂😊. Beach still looks a little rocky but definitely improving. Vegetation is also looking better.

I'm on the island now and spent the last two days on beaches on the west, just north of Sandcastles and the north side of Rainbow I believe it was and the beaches were beautiful. May spend another day over that way soon!
