Beach Bye Laws
In order to make the beach area safe and pleasant for everybody, a number of restrictions are in place relating to litter, dogs, jet-skis and noise.
Following a period of extensive public consultation, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council adopted new Beach Bye Laws in 2012.
Anyone operating a jet ski must hold a permit issued by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council. Jet skis may only be operated between the hours of 7.30 pm and 10 am and must stay 300 metres from the foreshore except when launching.
