Be sure to note their location on the beach. It is dangerous to wade or swim near the jetties at any time as they create water currents and are encrusted with barnacles (salt water shellfish having very sharp edges) as well as protruding hardware in their construction. It is wise always to swim or wade directly in front of the lifeguard stand.
No flotation devices are allowed to be used on weekends and holidays.
