FRom the article: "The adjacent 12-unit Harmony Studios, which is on land owned by Selengut, will also close because it uses the Maho restaurant, beach and other infrastructure."

The beach to 50ft above the high water mark is still public. I sure as heck hope that the new owners understand that they must (under law) allow access. I wonder how the beach access provisions are represented by the realators involved. Was the new owner led to believe that he/she/they were purchasing a private beach? Will DPNR step up and enforce the public access codes?
