  1. Be nice if someone checked to see if you had a beach tag. They walk right by as though they are on a stroll down the beach

    1. From my perspective the checkers do a great job. They cannot check everyone and should not have to if you obey the rules. My husband wears our tags on his hat. Esau to spot or he just waved it yo the kids When we have our group of 10 we have the added tags on a small beach tote hanging on the umbrella or beach chair. We tuck it away when we are in the water.

      From what I have witnessed it is the beach goers without tags who can be rude and difficult. Why not check the attitude at the AC toll booth and enjoy your day at the beach.

  2. Thank you for keeping the beach rag prices in Margate and Ventnor half that of Longport. It is also very considerate to give senior citizen pricing on badges. However, what has happened to the visual beauty of the Margate beaches with the installation of those dunes, the construction equipment and noise, the removal of “the rocks”, the eyesore installation of huge pipes going into the sea, all of this is horrible! I hardly even recognize our beautiful wide open pristine beaches to what they have become in the last 3 years. It’s a shame!

  3. Why must we pay for beach tags at all? As Margate taxpayers, we should have a right to sit on our own beaches free of charge, as we had been for so many years in the past. Why aren’t the price of beach tags included in our taxes? I read that Margate’s ratables have increased substantially, so why are we still charged to sit on our beaches?
