Martin County - High Tides and Erosion Force Bathtub Beach Closure
Martin County - Monday October 24, 2022: While nearly all beaches are naturally prone to gradual erosion, Bathtub Beach continues to experience high tides and heavy surf conditions, causing a significant change in the shoreline. While the beach continues to absorb the brunt force of waves allowing the dunes to protect roads and structures, heavy surf and erosion make for dangerous conditions for beachgoers.
While closed, Bathtub Beach will not be guarded. Martin County has three other guarded beaches - Jensen Beach, Stuart Beach and Hobe Sound Beach, as well as many other pocket beaches along the coastline. Beachgoers are always encouraged to swim near a lifeguard and be water safe. Visit www.martin.fl.us/OceanRescue for beach safety, beach cams and other information.
