For those of you who will be visiting Donovan's Reef for the first time, here's some answers to typical questions asked by our customers.

During the daytime before 5 PM, children under 21 are allowed on the beach with an adult over 21.  No one under 21 is allowed in the bar area at any time. This policy allows us to welcome families to our beach.

Yes, Donovan's Reef only accepts cash and does not accept credit cards.  An ATM is conveniently located inside our bar area.

Yes, our beach is lifeguarded by certified lifeguards from 10 AM to 5 PM, seven days a week, weather permitting.  During lightning, thunderstorms or heavy surf conditions, swimming may not be permitted.

There is a cover charge on the weekends which varies based on whether it is a special event or holiday weekend.

There is limited free parking in our parking lot.  You can park in the large municipal lot, which uses numbered spaces and a pay kiosk system.  Sea Bright strictly enforces any no parking zones and will tow your vehicle if it's parked illegally.

Since Donovan's Reef sells food and water, no outside food or beverages are allowed either in the bar/restaurant area or on our beach.

We are open seven days a week, from 9 AM until 2 AM.
