Beach Safety

This summer, Escambia County Sheriff’s Deputies will be enforcing all state and local alcohol laws and ordinances. Don’t get caught unaware this summer! Know the law concerning alcohol on the beach!

There are four specific alcohol policies being enforced this summer on Pensacola Beach.

  • The west side of the Pensacola Gulf Pier is now an Alcohol FREE zone.
  • Open containers are not allowed off the Boardwalk or outside any establishment.
  • NO alcohol can be consumed in any parking lot on Santa Rosa Island.
  • There is absolutely NO GLASS allowed on any of the beaches.

Alcohol may be consumed on area beaches as long as it is not in a glass container.

Any person that fails to comply with these policies will face second-degree misdemeanor charges and if convicted can receive a $500 fine and or 60 days jail time.
