Scenic Gulf Drive Regional Beach Access

Scenic Gulf

Scenic Gulf Drive is a brand new (2022) Regional Beach Access that includes a picnic shelter, restroom, parking, and showers. The dune walkover is also ADA accessible.


Beach accesses with parking are hard to come by, so this location is a favorite. At this access there are parking spots for vehicles (18), golf carts (9), and a bike rack.


Beach chairs are typically available for rent and can be found at the pop-up stands, contingent to them being there.

Before heading to the beach, know the surf conditions by taking note of the colored flag system.

Double red flags mean the water is closed for swimming due to powerful rip currents that can sweep even the strongest swimmers out to sea. Stay safe, check today’s conditions on our Beach Safety page.
