The restoration of Bathtub Beach is complete including new Sand Dunes
Update May 27, 2010, Bathtub Reef Beach will be Open for Memorial Day Weekend
The beach was badly damaged in the 2004 Hurricanes.
Here is the current status: Beach repairs are done, there are new dunes in place planted with sea oats and the final cleanup of the parking lot is just about done.
When the Beach reopens for Memorial Day Weekend 2010 - there will be no bathrooms. But there are bathrooms about 200 yards to the north at Rocks Beach.
The water off Bathtub Beach is crystal clear - we were just off shore on May 21.
There are three entrances to Bathtub’s huge sandy parking lot. The beach itself is protected by Bathtub Reef. The reef creates a lagoon off the shore, making this the best beach option for children.
Here you can find large bathrooms and changing rooms, as well as several showers to rinse off. Although the beaches technically close at night, the parking lot is lighted to be safe.
You can also find a payphone here.
Following the boardwalk over the sand dunes, be sure to look for the environmental exhibit. The exhibit is in an open, but covered, extension of the boardwalk.
Bathtub beach is now restored and the water is crystal clear
With all the new sand that brought in the beach area is now much larger.
