Port Royal Plantation 2012 Beach Renourishment
Walking the beach along Port Royal Plantation these days is kind of a surreal experience. 1,000,000, yes 1 MILLION, cubic yards of new sand has been placed upon an approximately one mile stretch of beach from the Westin to the Port Royal Beach Club! This past weekend while biking along the shore as the tide was going out, I was amazed to see the vast difference in the beach. Just past the Beach Club there is a 700' boulder 'groin' being completed. This rock wall is low crested and will be mostly buried when completed. As you look from the new shoreline back to the Oceanfront Homes in Port Royal Plantation, you'll feel like you are about half way to Spain, plus the height of the new sand is the same as the dunes. It's truly amazing. The cost was also, just under $10 Million (EZ Math says that's about $10.00 per cubic yard of sand, my goodness, that's a $10 million mile!). What will this renourishment and the amount of dollars spent to enhance the beach along do for property values in Port Royal Plantation?
