It’s been several years since Ocean Isle Beach town commissioners voted to ban cabanas from the beach, but John Goodwin, police chief, said it’s a violation beach patrol officers address daily.
“We don’t allow cabanas on the beach, and people are still trying to use them,” Goodwin said. “There’s nothing the officers can do. [They] have to go along with what the town ordinance says.”
Although officers have to remind people daily, Goodwin said most everyone is cooperative and understands the rule.
