The stairs to the beach at Bermuda Avenue have collapsed.  Bermuda Avenue is in south Ocean Beach, and the stairs normally lead to a wonderful pocket beach – that has seen a lot of erosion over the last 40 years and loss of sand.

Repairs are expected to take at least 1 to 2 years.

1 – 2 years. Looks like you can still go down. But, Enter at your own risk.

They should demo the lower section and make it a viewing platform for the duration of the planning process. I think that’s what Captain Sticky would do.

they have been on the way to failure for a number of years. Surprised they lasted as long as they have. The city should have had the property owners, the condos to the North and the compound to the south , in some cash for the reconstruction when those properties did improvements to their walls. Accessing that beach will be a real challenge now.
Of course the removal of the stairs was nature in action taking back its land
