    We were in Seagrove Beach 2 weeks ago and walked down to the Seagrove Villas because we've stayed there numerous times. At that time there were no steps down to the beach from that area...in fact there were only a few private access rebuilt in the area between Beacons Condominiums and Seaside...non of the public accesses were open. There was extensive restoration going on on the beach in front of S.V....They were dropping some sort of piers at the dune line (which is now a cliff). We are midwesterners so we were unfamiliar with what they might be trying to accomplish with the piers...maybe some sort of wall???? It looked as if some people were climbing down the sand piles that were on the beach...but there was an awful lot of heavy equipment in use in the area and it seemed a little unsafe to us that people would be climbing the cliff via the sand piles. The beaches in the area are still beautiful...the water was as gorgeous as we've ever seen it. I would check with the rental agency to find out what direction they are giving guests for getting to the beach. The pool looked fine...the older building fronting the beach look closed, but there were obviously people staying in the newer building and the cottages. There are open accesses closer to the Eastern Lake end of the beach and Dunes of Seagrove.

    Beachma....you are correct. Those people should NOT have been climbing on the cliffs/dunes. Not only is it a dangerous stunt, it is illegal and damaging to whatever land is still in place. There may or may not have been signs in place regarding the ordinance because of the recent storms. It has been observed many times that people will take whatever path they choose to get to the beaches...it's just not always the legal or thoughtful way. Thanks for pointing this out.

    No signs....no flags...really nothing at all in the 10 days we were there that would give info on beach conditions or anything. We saw one flag pole that had been uprooted and leaned against the dunes...no flags all week giving water conditions...The water was pretty much a no-brainer though...no waves to speak of all week...just gorgeous and calm :cool: :clap_1: !
