Beach erosion continues to plague Caspersen Beach

Caspersen Beach continues disappear as erosion problem gets worse.

“It’s hard to get down to the beach,” said tourist Andy Nelson.

Nelson and his family heard about the beach from a family friend. He said they were told, “the beach is amazing and so beautiful.”

Nelson said that’s not what he got Wednesday morning. They left the beach early.

“The beach just drops off. It’s tough to find a place to sit,” Nelson said. “I mean you got palm trees laying all over the place cause they’re falling off the edge."
