New Florida Beach Laws for the Rich!
Based on a new Florida law, ritzy beach hotels, resorts and mansions may soon be able to keep the riffraff off their sand. For many years, all of Florida's beaches were open to the public, even the Palm Beach mansions that sell for $50 million and more. Beginning July 1, Florida beach lovers may not be able to get their sun tan on their favorite beaches. The beach owners will need to get a judge's order and can only restrict access to dry sand that ocean tides do not reach. About 60 percent of Florida beaches are privately owned. www.orlandoweekly.com
