kordoJust wondering does anyone know how to access the hidden beach on the very south end of the island?

"In The Bahamas, we should be asking ourselves; did we rob the church? The same areas that were hit by Hurricane Frances not a month ago were hit and hit hard yesterday by Hurricane Jeanne. We thought that Jeanne was gone, but the darn thing seemed to have a mind of its own and turned back and hit the northern Bahamas. The islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama experienced the eye of the Hurricane measuring 25 miles right over their communities.

The eye of the hurricane passed over Pelican Point in Grand Bahama, and Marsh Harbour, Abaco. West End, Pinder's Point, Freeport were all soaked wet again. Roofs were off, and flooding occurred. Early reports are that eastern Freeport was also hard hit by the flooding from the tidal surges. The Bahamas government has a lot to account for now in the way it handles this crisis. Its term of office could well be determined by how it responds to this double crisis.

People are severely traumatized and need help quickly. We know that there have been criticisms of delay in dealing with repairs and duty-free products coming into The Bahamas. The whole process of hurricane relief by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) starts now all over again. Thankfully, there was no loss of life."

Jeanne has come and gone. Fortunately for the Bahamas it did not have the devastating countrywide impact of Frances. North Eleuthera including Gregory Town to Harbour Island and Spanish Wells suffered minimal damages. The bridge is still there.
