Most DCR swimming beaches are open to the public between Memorial Day and Labor Day. During that time DCR offers access to parking, restroom facilities and regular water quality testing. Many DCR beaches also offer lifeguard services. After Labor Day and before Memorial Day, DCR does not conduct regular water quality testing or guarantee other beach services
DCR allows the use of ONLY U.S. Coast Guard approved flotation devices at it's public swimming ocean, inland beaches and pools. The tag inside the flotation device must say U.S. Coast Guard approved. The user of the approved flotation device must be accompanied by a capable swimmer. Inflatable devices are not allowed.
Although U.S. Coast Guard approved flotation devices are allowed, DCR asks that parents or guardians always keep a close watch on their children when in any amount of water. In certain conditions such as strong currents flotation devices may not be allowed by the Lifeguard staff. If you have any questions please check with the Lifeguard on duty.
Inflatable Swimmies are not US Coast Guard approved and therefore not allowed. Thank you for your cooperation.
