Activities in the area
If you are going to the beach this weekend, plan to be there early to avoid late morning high tides. Vehicle ramps will open no earlier than 8 a.m., and all vehicles must exit the beach before 7 p.m.

To get real-time beach information, make sure to download the Volusia County Beach app, which can provide ramp closures, locations of staffed lifeguard towers, tides and more. You also can access a real-time map that shows locations for off-beach parking, restrooms, lifeguard towers and beach ramps. Beachgoers should make sure to swim in front of a staffed lifeguard tower and be on the lookout for marked sea turtle nests. For more details, follow Volusia Beaches on Twitter.
