The beach has eroded quite a bit over time. I was there in 2011, and again in 2014 and the beach had gotten smaller. There is still a small beach there and the bars of course. Still a much visit for any aviation geek!

I could be very wrong, but I believe it's natural. Spring time and early summer there's a beach, fall time not so much. I thought it had to do with the winds. I used to go to SXM ~3 times a month and that's what I remember.

It has to do with the Hurricane season, its all natural. The beach is there normally November to May, when its not hurricane season. The heavy waves and destructive waves from the storms usually clear the beach and expose the boulders. Sometimes the beach is built so much by the waves that it overflows into the road. It is all natural and the authorities don't do anything about it except keeping the road clear.
