The state of Florida passed a bill earlier this year that favors property owners and prohibits local government from taking private beach for recreational use. As of July 1st, beachfront property owners, condos and hotels will have truly private beach that the public can no longer use.
Singer Island condo owners will have more private beach space as the general public must set up at public beaches. The wet tide line is still public access but dry sand is only for owners.
There are three public beaches on the island: City Beach, the main that most of the public already goes to just over the Blue Heron Bridge across from the Ocean Mall; Ocean Reef Park in the middle of the island, known for its surf and artificial dive sites; and Jonathan Dickinson State Park at the north end.
