Alcoholic beverages, fireworks of all types, sparklers, glass containers, coolers larger than 36” long and barbecue grills are prohibited on the beach and could be confiscated by Hollywood Police. Picnicking is permitted on the sandy beach only between Sherman and Custer streets as well as within Charnow Park at Garfield Street, Keating Park at Magnolia Terrace, and Harry Berry Park at Azalea Terrace.

It is prime nesting season for several protected species of sea turtles. Turtle nesting activity is normal and should not be considered an emergency. If you plan to stake out a spot on the sand to watch the fireworks, please remember the nesting habits of sea turtles can be impacted by light sources. Please refrain from using flashlights. If you do encounter a sea turtle or sea turtle nest, do not disturb it. Knowingly interfering with a sea turtle nest could result in civil or even criminal penalties and fines. Please note, nesting activity is not an emergency.

All boaters are advised to travel at safe speeds and to watch for endangered species including manatees and sea turtles. Any collisions with or injury to sea turtles, manatees or other protected species must be reported to Sea Turtle Emergency Line (24 hours) at 954.328.0580 and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at 1.888.404.FWCC. Spectator boats are not allowed to anchor on or above sea grass, hard bottom or coral reef structures and could face fines or criminal penalties for doing so. This is a condition of the event permit from the U.S. Coast Guard. Boaters also must remain at least 1,400 feet from the fireworks barge. The Hollywood Police Department Marine Unit will be on hand to assure boaters follow these regulations.

Restrooms are located at Charnow Park and at Tyler, Fillmore, Johnson, and Taft Streets on the Broadwalk for your convenience.

Due to heavy traffic and limited parking, spectators are encouraged to utilize the free shuttle buses located at the two downtown Hollywood garages. Please read more information about parking and traveling to Hollywood Beach on the 4th of July.
