Comments about: Waveland Beach

I was all excited about buying a property in Bay Tree development, across the road form Waveland Beach, only to be told that the beach is posted “No. Dogs”-is this true? Is this only during certain hours or days?etc.etc. If entirely true, I will not make this buy as my dog is part of our family and the Waveland access was part of our attraction to the Bay Tree property.
this would seem to be pretty short sighted management on part of the county, especially in a very depressed real estate market.

Waveland Beach is a Guarded Beach. This is because turtles build nests right on the beach. Having a status of “Guarded” means that no dogs are allowed on the beach. For Waveland beach this restriction is year round.

My soon to be husband and I have very fond memories of Waveland beach. We were wondering if it is possible to get married there and if so, how would one go about it?

We just spoke with Barbara at the St Lucie County Parks and Recreation Department. Weddings are permitted and are there have been weddings on Waveland Beach.

You can get married on the beach and do not need any special permission. But if your party is going to be large (over 50 people) you may want to contact the St Lucie County Sheriff in advance.

Also keep in mind that there is limited parking and your guests will have to be aware of the Turtle Nests and not disturb them.

If you have more question call the St Lucie County Parks and Recreation Dept at 772-462-1517.
