Half Moon Bay beach accessibility

Beach matting unavailable

Due to weather and wave conditions eroding the beach, access matting will not be in place at Half Moon Bay until further notice.

We are working with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning regarding beach renourishment. The renourishment works should mean a more stable beach.

Beach access matting is, however, in place at Hampton Beach.
