The Town will be continuing our beach nourishment project toward the middle of December 2020. Therefore, there will be times during the season that the beach will be closed to vehicles, even with a valid permit. Although we will do our best to post a notice in advance, there will be times it will be closed with no notice. No refunds or credits will be given for those times the beach is not accessible.
Beach driving permits are only issued to four wheel drive vehicles and are for fishing purposes only. Pleasure riding on the beach is not allowed. Anyone caught driving on the beach without a permit will be ticketed and escorted off the beach.
