Slide presentation beaches and hurricanes: 1995 in the Eastern Caribbean Islands

Slide 12: Sandpiper Restaurant, Pinney’s Beach, Nevis, after Hurricane Luis

This restaurant at Pinney’s Beach, Nevis, was completed in the summer of 1995, and was located 35 metres (120 ft) from the high water mark.  Waves from Hurricane Luis washed right through the restaurant.  There had been little recovery at this beach site six months after the hurricane.  (The restaurant was eventually dismantled).
