sand hole

Large holes in the sand can be difficult to see and are dangerous for both people and wildlife.

Ocean rescue personnel must be able to drive on the beach both day and night to quickly provide emergency services.

Sand collapses can occur in holes just a few feet deep, so never dig a hold deeper than it is wide. Children and adults should not dig holes deeper than their knees when standing in them. If you do dig, fill it in!

Also, sea turtle nesting season is May thru September. Holes in the sand are obstructions for female sea turtles laying nests on the beach at night and hatchlings heading out to sea roughly 60 days later.

Think before you dig!
