inside scoop

  • You need a beach permit to park at most beaches from Memorial Day - Labor Day.
  • Traffic can be terrible, avoid the main road and take the side roads when possible.
  • The earlier you go to Surf Lodge, the more likely you are to get in and not have to wait in line.
  • Rent a boat for a few hours from Global Boarding, so much fun!
