A beach reservation does not entitle you to a specific area of the beach. If available, you will be allowed at least one grill and up to 2 picnic tables. Beach areas are first come, first served for tables and grills. 

You may not reserve a space prior to gate opening on the day of your event. We merely ensure that there are no other large parties scheduled on the same beach for the same period that combined, would exceed 50 persons or 10 cars. 

Card-carrying residents always have the right to use the beaches. Please work with one another. If you have a non-calendar beach event, please yield to scheduled events, as this is a planned event as opposed to a non-reserved gathering.



To make a beach party reservation, first visit the community calendar and check to see if the beach you want to reserve is available on the date and time that you would like. If so, great! 

If your desired date and time is already reserved, please request the reservation anyway. Depending upon the size and time of the other event, it may be possible (on some beaches) to have more than one party at the same time.


NOTE: Parking permits for booked and paid reservations will be issued and delivered on the day of your event.


READ the Terms & Regulations that are posted on this page. When you are ready to make a reservation:

  • Click on the MAKE RESERVATIONS button at the bottom of this page
  • Fill out the reservations request and contact form
  • Add any additional details, regarding your party, in the comments section
  • Review your details
  • Sign and SEND

Your request will be forwarded to the current Beach Reservations Coordinator who will contact you about your request. The coordinator will mark the community calendar date with your name, time and beach as a PENDING designation.



At this point, your booking is NOT YET CONFIRMED.

The Beach Reservations Manager will review your request. If approved, you will be issued an invoice, via email, that can be paid online via a secure payment gateway.

You will be invoiced:

•  $75.00 Beach Rental

•  $50.00 Security Deposit (refundable)

•  $25.00 Dumpster Rental (optional)

NOTE: A $50 refundable deposit will be charged to insure beach clean-up is satisfactory and trash is removed. 

When payment is received and your booking is confirmed, the Beach Reservations Manager will change the status of your event to read CONFIRMED.
