From dune walkovers, driving beaches and the beach accessible wheelchair program, there are a variety of ways to access and enjoy St. John’s County’s coastline.
To help make our beaches more accessible, beach accessible wheelchairs are available at no charge. Please note that at least three days advance notification is required to reserve a wheelchair. For more information or to make a reservation, please contact SJC Beach Services at (904) 209-0331 or email@example.com.
There are approximately 12 miles of St. Johns County Beaches that allow for vehicular access. Vehicular access is permitted year-round; however, during the months of May through October, access is limited to the hours of 8:00am to 7:30pm. From March through September vehicles are required to purchase a beach driving pass. Daily and annual beach passes may be purchased from the toll attendants at the access ramps. Beach Driving Passes and Rules
Vehicular access is dependent on beach conditions — weather, sand, or tides may cause ramps to temporarily close or limit access to 4 Wheel Drive vehicles. Daily driving conditions are posted to our Facebook and X accounts (follow SJC Beaches), on the Reach the Beach Mobile App and on the Beach Driving Updates webpage.
