Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, DCR offers access to parking, restroom facilities and regular water quality testing. Many DCR beaches also offer lifeguard services.
DCR allows the use of only U.S. Coast Guard approved flotation devices at its public swimming ocean, inland beaches and pools. The user of the approved flotation device must be accompanied by a capable swimmer. Inflatable devices are not allowed.
DCR asks that parents or guardians always keep a close watch on their children win 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.
