The webcam is working, so I assume that Sunset Beach Bar is open.

Sunset Cafe is at GCBC and I think they were closing for a few days for annual vacation, but I think it is either back open, or open again soon.

As of the day we left, Sunday, Sunset Cafe at GCBC closes at 4:00 PM, but is open for breakfast and lunch. I believe the bar is pen until 8.

You may be thinking of Driftwood boat bar at the other end of Maho Beach.
It has been closed since Fiona went past.
They had some damage even though they took down the roof tarp and boarded up the bar. They are affecting repairs and will reopen.

Exactly my thoughts. On Driftwood vs Sunset. Read Driftwood closed…… view sunset webcam 2 x a day πŸ‘

I noticed that as well. Before, rocks were exposed all the way to Driftwood. Now, beach is coming back. Funny how that works.

Sept 20 to Sept 26. 6 days. Maho Beach.
Storms with a strong south swell take the sand.
After the storms, the usual swell returns with the sand
