During the non-summer months you don't need a beach sticker & you can bring your dog to romp around off leash to play with other dogs, play fetch or swim! Such fun for all!

No, you do not need a pass. The pass is only for parking at the beach, the town does not screen people going into the beach. While you won't be able to be driven into the center of the beach, there is a drop off zone right... More
