Picturesque though they are, coastal sand dunes and Dune Grass serve a more important purpose than beauty. Dunes act as flexible barriers to ocean storm surges and waves, protect low-lying areas, catch wind blown sand aiding in the prevention of beach erosion, and may provide a habitat for animals and birds. DUNE GRASS is very weak. If you step on it, the whole plant will die. With this in mind, while you are enjoying our beaches, please do not touch the Dune Grass. Thank you.
Parking Meters on the east side of Ocean Avenue are in effect starting May 19 through September 9th.¬† Cost $1.00 (coins only) per hour for your convenience. Hours 8am-7pm.
Parking is free on the west side of Ocean Avenue.
