    What I am “entitled” to is my opinion & that doesn’t cost anything— my opinion is that they should disclose the info to guests who don’t access to forums, Facebook or other social media outlets, that’s all. Enjoy your day-☀️

    I am headed to Seaside next week and will be bringing all my gear including food. I received notice today regarding Cabana Man rentals for beach access. I also, as a previous poster stated, find it egregious. Lately we have rented condos above the town square because the views are gorgeous and it is great people watching. We did know from previous times that we do not get wrist bands when you stay in that particular area. I also understand that there does need to be a limit to people accessing the beach from Coleman during this time. I have also rented from Cabana Man on many occasions when I have wanted a beach setup. I will absolutely not rent from him this time nor ever again! For a family of 4 it would cost $985 for 1 umbrella and 4 chairs at Colman, if I were to rent the same setup from a Pavillion entry point it would only cost $523 for 5 days. I really don't see the need to gouge people at Coleman entry, if it were the same cost I would rent but there is no way in hell I am gonna pay more at one entry point over another. Going forward do what Watercolor does, put up a gate or security and only let people with access cards or bracelets on the beach that actually rent/own in Seaside. I will still thoroughly enjoy myself but cannot stand being squeezed! Happy Friday!

    Why so angry? You could've just written your first sentance and been done. Instead you decided to judge and put down a stranger who was being very polite. Hope ya feel better

    If you compare the Seaside cam to the sandestin cam you'll see why Seaside is restricting beach access. Otherwise its a mob scene.

    Just saw that. Also saw someone working the fence/gate at Seaside. Looks like when someone leaves the beach, he is letting others go to the beach. I guess until the new rule goes into effect, they are limiting - at least through that portal - the number of people. What about the Bud & Alley approach? People using that? And they can easily use the public option between Seaside & Watercolor. When we are there in August, please dear beach god, don't let it look like that. We will go early in the morning anyway & before it becomes a zoo, leave. Return in the evening during dinner time & sunset.....Ellen

    Correct. The central accesses are closed.

    Is this happening at any of the other beaches--ex. Watersound, Rosemary? Where you have to rent from this one guy and no coolers are allowed? Thank you!!

    Not sure about coolers but yes, Rosemary, Alys, WaterSound, etc have a single beach service you must rent from.

    Just my opinion but one of these resorts is not a bad choice right now because they have some control over the amount of people on the beach. Especially Seaside and Alys Beach. WaterSound Beach would be good also because they have the most beach and people can spread out.

    Thank you so much! Do you know if those places will allow you to bring your own chairs and umbrella?
