I am planning to go down to the beach tomorrow for the day/night.
I hate coming off the beach sandy so I need to shower somewhere. I see that 13th street has public showers for $8 an adult. Has anyone ever used them?
If my wife and I go is it really $16 for the both of us to shower?

I don't care to wash my hair but mainly to rinse off with clean water so I can put new clothes on and not feel sticky. Is there any other options? $8 for the both of us seems fine but double that and it starts to get silly since most beach towns have shower rinsers for free.

Any help is appreciated.

I realize this is too late, but I do believe those showers are the only option. I know it's expensive, but you have to realize this place is on the boardwalk and paying probably $100,000 a year in rent, which they have 3 months to make. There are free foot sprayers outside the restroom areas at 9th and 12th streets, but that's about it.

There are sprays on 6th street as well. I think one is on the boardwalk right before you walk onto the beach and the other is at the restrooms there.

I never heard of charging for public showers. 8.00 ea is way too high.

I noted that the shower people are offering use of a daily beach tag with the $8 purchase....which means, if you are just a day tripper and don't have a beach tag yet, the shower will only cost you an additional $3. They do charge a dollar for a clean towel, so it is best to have a clean one of your own to save on money.

That's because it is not a public shower but a private company offering a service for a fee
