Closure of Cape Point
Unfortunately after being open for the last 660 consecutive days, less one for ordnance disposal, a closure of the last 1500 feet of Cape Point took place this morning. The development of "Shelly Island" last summer created an eventual merge of that sand bar with the main Point. It created a much expanded Point and also an ideal nesting sight for a few different species of birds.
The placement of the nests is such that a vehicle corridor is not possible. If you are thinking of heading to the Point to get in on what has been a classic drum bite you may wish to consider an alternative. There are 26 miles of beach open to ORV access at present. It's a guess that this closure could last into July depending on a number of different possibilities.
