The Captiva Erosion Prevention District reported that there will be free parking offered on July 25-26 from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Alison Hagerup Beach parking lot, at 14790 Captiva Drive, Captiva.
The CEPD added that it will have beach attendants at the lot on Saturdays and Sundays until Aug. 2. RVs, campers, boats and trailers are not permitted to park in the lot; there is no overnight parking.
The CEPD asked the public to be mindful of sea turtles and to maintain space between their nests and the surf. Avoid using flashlights or flash photography on the beach at night; fill in holes in the sand.
Fires, fireworks, barbecues and alcohol are prohibited on the beach. Pets must be leashed.
