SANDY COVE BEACH GUIDELINES
We all love Sandy Cove and wish to preserve its natural beauty. We also want
to enjoy beach activities while at the same time respecting each other’s rights.
The Sandy Cove Association has agreed on the following guidelines.
~ DOGS: Cohasset has a leash law. When people, especially children, are on the beach,
dogs must be leashed or otherwise restrained. Please pick up after your dog.
~ LITTER: Pick up and take your things home after a visit to the beach. When possible,
also pick up plastic and other manmade litter and deposit in trash barrels or take away
with you. Trash barrels are located on Lothrop Lane near the bathhouses and midway
along the beach. If each beachgoer removes just one or two pieces of litter, the beach
will stay clean.
~ BOATS: The beach is owned by a few of the Association members, with others having
beach rights. Therefore boats should not be left or stored on the beach without the
express permission of the owner of that part of the beach. Boats powered by motors
should not be brought into the posted swim area. Elsewhere they should only go at
idle speed (extremely slow) so as not to endanger swimmers or children. If a boat
is bothering you, politely ask the operator to stay farther offshore. Boat owners
~ VEHICLES: There should be no driving on the beach, with the exception of workrelated
vehicles such as those used for beach cleanup. Any exceptions should be held
to a minimum and the vehicles removed from the beach as soon as their work is done.
Note that no parking is allowed on Lothrop Lane, which is a private, dead-end drive.
The lane is narrow and must be kept open for emergency vehicles. Please also watch out
for children, bicyclists, dogs, and horses.
~ PARTIES: Notify the Association (and landlord if applicable) of planned events on the
beach (see Distribution List for e-mail addresses). Remember, we use the beach in trust
with other members, so make sure that your party doesn’t harm the enjoyment of the
beach by others or disturb the upland residents who actually own the beach. Keep any
fires away from beach grasses or properties near the beach that could be ignited by flying
embers. Pick up after your party, making sure that fires are out and the ashes cool.
Douse your fires with water instead of covering them with sand. Note that to have a fire
on the beach, you need permission from the Fire Department for a “cooking” fire.
~ GUESTS: Renters and people with beach rights may have guests on the beach, but are
requested to accompany them. Please make sure they follow these guidelines. Post
the guidelines in rented houses so that tenants will know them. The on-the-spot
Association members do not like to be policemen.
