Hotel, condo and homeowners could kick beachgoers off their property

A new state law will give property owners the ability to kick the public off of their beaches.

Florida’s beaches have long belonged to the public thanks to the state’s “customary use” policy. Beginning July 1, house bill 631 will allow property owners, including hotel, condo and home owners, the option to ask people to leave, according to First Coast News.

The “Possession of Real Property” bill only applies to dry sand. Any part of the beach that gets wet due to the tide will remain public, NBC 6 Miami reported.

Local governments would also not be able to pass legislation opposing it.
