Florida Statutes:
Public Shore
Basically, the wet sand area is for everyone.
Closer in to the dry area, people can put up "Private" signs.
As many of us know, Florida beaches contain some of the most gorgeous coastline in the nation.
What do y'all think a beach-front property owner's rights are?
What do y'all think about privatizing the beach?
On the one hand, I believe that people should be able to walk our coasts freely.
The beach-going public should be able to access all areas.
On the other, it's disgusting to see how people casually trash the beach with cigarette butts, dog poop and the dreaded plastic bottles.
I understand how someone who spends a lot of $ would like to enjoy their little corner of paradise in peace.
What do you think?

Vero Beach east of A-1-A is all private and mostly gated communities. There are several public access points to the beach in the county with park facilities at each access. You cannot, however, access the beach anywhere you would like. The ocean front homeowners own the higher reaches of the beach{somewhere out to the high tide line}. I, personally like the limited access because it does basically allow me to have a semi private beach. I have no problem with the public sitting out in front of my house on the beach, however, you will have to walk about 5 miles from the public access to get to it. Very nice, pristine, little trash and uncrowded.
