Public beach access is a universal right…

Beach access is the ability to reach the sand and surf.  It is the means of entry to our oceans, waves and beaches.

Surfrider Foundation promotes the right of low-impact, free and open access to the world’s waves and beaches for all people. Beaches are one of the most popular public resources. Because individuals need access to beaches in order to enjoy them, Surfrider Foundation acts to protect the right of access.
