Oh, that's terrible, Fred! I can't imagine not having free access to the beautiful beaches of Florida. I truly believe this will impact the state's economy if this continues.

So sorry, Fred.

We have some private beaches that are highly contested out here.  Generally if you want to do any work on your home in Malibu the coastal commission requires that you make your private beach public as part of the permitting process.  I'm not a fan of that, as I do like the thought of private beaches.  Afterall, we have PLENTY of public beaches out here and in LA County you can't drink booze on them.  I'd like to be able to sit on my beach chair, on my beach, and drink a mai-tai if I so please.

Fred,

We have one beach when the access is from the enclave is only for the homeowners.  Others may access the beach from other areas and they do.  They are  just are not allowed via the enclave's pass through, as that is private proerty.  The beach is not..  It is not easy to get to, and most don't bother to head that way.  

What was your governor thinking?

I can see this will have a great impast on tourism.  The reason tourists come to visit Florida is to go to the beach... When someone buys a "beachfront" property, I can't see the lot can include the sand and water... ???  There must be a demarcation line somewhere..

It's not a big deal in my area and I really do not see anything wrong with it. Businesses are trying to keep their part of the beach available for their guests and I understand that. 

As a guest, if I am paying $500 per night to stay at the Breakers and the beach behind it packed with dudes from the Hampton Inn across the street scoping out the the high rollers, then they gotta go.
