I don't think they charge to park in off season so park the car, we change in parking lot(personal choice) just walk down to beach select chairs without tags on them & set up. the beach guy will come along & collect $20 for 2 chairs & 1 umbrella or you can go to the sports building & get 7 days worth for $120 to be used in a 9 day period. There are outdoor showers up near the guards building to wash sand off before you get back into the car. You will see where it is quieter when you get to the beach. Have fun!
