Beach Status - April 30, 2020

Effective Saturday, May 2, Volusia County will lift the activity restrictions of essential exercise on Volusia County beaches.

Activities including sitting, sunbathing and other activities will be permitted beginning Saturday. To avoid the potential for person-to-person spread of the virus, groups on the beach are limited to a maximum of six people and groups are required to distance themselves by at least 10 feet from other groups.

To prevent crowding, other than three beach vehicle ramps for handicapped access, all other beach ramps remain closed to vehicles. However, parking along county rights-of-way adjacent to the beach are open. Beachgoers have been required to engage in physical activity such as walking or jogging and then leave the beach when they were done. The county also plans to open a limited number of additional off-beach parking provided that conditions on the beach remain favorable for social distancing. The number of available spots will largely depend on the volume of beachgoers near each parking area. Potential areas include the county’s coastal parks as well as Michael Crotty Bicentennial Park, Wisteria Road parking lot and Dahlia Avenue Park. Parking at these locations will be limited to prevent crowding on the beach. Lighthouse Point Park and Smyrna Dunes Park will also open Saturday at partial capacity.

Restrooms, splash pads, playgrounds and showers will remained closed at all of these facilities.
