Beach rules

Here are some ways you can make the beach safe and enjoyable for everyone. Please:

  • Always swim directly in front of a Lifeguard.
  • The 10 mph speed limit is strictly enforced. Violators will be fined $41 and up.
  • Alcohol, pets and glass containers are not allowed.
  • Music or noise which can be heard from more than 50 feet of the source is illegal.
  • It is illegal to disturb dune vegetation.
  • Driving or parking in the conservation zone is prohibited.
  • Personal watercraft operators must stay in the proper zones and wear a helmet at all times.
  • Please help us protect the beach environment

  • Don't disturb a turtle that is crawling to or from the ocean or laying eggs. Watch from a distance.
  • Avoid shining lights on the beach at night as this may frighten away nesting females and interfere with the baby turtles' ability to find the sea.
  • Avoid walking or cycling in places posted as nesting areas.
  • Immediately report any injured or dead sea turtle to the nearest Volusia County Beach Safety employee.
  • Do not disturb markers or protective screening over turtle nests. These nests are being studied and protected.
  • Avoid walking on the dunes along the beach.
  • Don't disturb nesting sea birds
  • Don't litter. Cigarette butts, fishing line and other trash can harm the animals and birds along the beach.
  • Do your part to spread the word about environment-friendly habits on the beach.
