Makamah Geisler’s Beach Improvements
I have lived in the beautiful hamlet of Fort Salonga for seven years, and I refer to Makamah Beach as just that. It is, however, also known as Geisler’s Beach to those who have lived here for much longer. It is one and the same.
The past year has seen many improvements to the beach’s parking area. These improvements were done by the Town of Huntington, and are almost complete. There is some cleanup required to the left as you enter through the gate — reseeding of the grassed area and some moving of the stone slabs on the beach. Working on the beach is very delicate due to the D.E.C. not allowing too much moving around of the existing stone, sand, and boulders.
If you haven’t been down to the beach in a long time, you should go to see how beautiful it looks. You will notice a bench donated by members of the Fort Salonga Association. Sit there and enjoy the beautiful views of the water and across to Connecticut.
Thanks to all concerned: Ed Carr, Lars Olsen from the Maritime services of the Town of Huntington and the Fort Salonga Association for getting this project completed.
