People who purchase passes must understand that it can not be guaranteed that there will be space on the beach available when you arrive, and the parking lot and beach will close when the beach is deemed full. For safety reasons, vehicles will not be allowed to wait by the gate for the parking lot to open. We can not guarantee that the status of the parking lot and beach capacity will be posted publicly. There will be no refunds if the beach capacity constantly fills up before arrival. Please plan accordingly.
