Tropical Storm Bertha Update

Tropical Storm Bertha was a hurricane just a few hours before it passed within 100 miles of Bermuda on Monday but was still packing some pretty serious winds.

Thank you for your calls and emails of concern for us at 9 Beaches. I'm happy to report Bertha left no serious damage!

Our cabanas are made of very strong sail cloth and aluminum and are surprisingly sturdy structures having withstood hurricanes in the past. All of our departments have an excellent preparedness plan, and we have a second generator just in case.

Here is a photo of Paradise Pier on Monday when the storm was here.

Our guests had a great time despite the weather. It certainly made for a vacation they’ll never forget!

If you stayed at 9 Beaches during Tropical Storm Bertha, share you stories with us!
