BEACH TAGS UPDATE (May 2019) Please be advised that Bonnet Shores residents will once again be required to show their beach tags to gain entrance to Kelly Beach this summer. There are NO new tags being issued. Tags which were originally distributed are to be used. If you have lost or misplaced your tag(s), you may show any document which has your Bonnet address printed on it (i.e. drivers license, tax bill, utility bill, etc.) to gain access. For additional information or any questions, please contact the District Manager at (401) 789-4540
Only Bonnet Shores residents and their guests are permitted to access Kelly Beach. Security guards are on duty to verify residency. Kelly Beach is only accessible via the beach entrance located on Dunes Road. Accessing the beach by trails, dunes, etc. is strictly prohibited. There is no parking at any time on Dunes Road. Those wishing to "drop off" may do so at the entrance/walkway to the beach. Security guards are authorized to notify police and/or an authorized tow company for any vehicle left in the area for longer than 10 minutes. (JUL 2015)
