What is Turtle Season?
Nesting Season in Broward County officially begins March 1 and ends October 31. The area is home to Leatherbacks, Loggerheads, and Green sea turtles. All sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach at night and MUST have unobstructed access to their nesting grounds.

During this time, please be aware that our beach attendants can not set up before the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) come to check on the nests every morning. This also prohibits cleaning/ raking any seaweed that come onto our beach within a certain radius of the nests and limits how many chairs/ umbrellas can be put out for our guests.
