The ‘real’ beach for ‘the people.’ Where our fight to maintain ownership was NOT to keep the public outrather, allow the public “more” rights and access to use than the state or other government owned beaches.Our goal is to share those rights with you. Though we pay taxes and maintain the beach without anygovernment supplemental funds or assistance other state and city owned beaches benefit from PorrettoBeach falsely claiming they maintain or renourish the area so they can continue to receive funds. Its your taxdollars mis-used through government funding for their undisclosed use yet, we continue to maintain thearea, incur expenses, donate sand and welcome the public without burdening the public. The state and citysadly, restrict the public when obtaining funds. Our goal is to carry on a legacy and maintain ‘open doors’ toa privately owned beach allowing special events, weddings, corporate events, sponsorships, familyreunions, team meetings, water sports, competitions, exhibitions, charities and concerts….anything ispossible even with private ownership rules to abide by for safety and order. What brings people together tocause smiles on their faces, warmth in their hearts, sand between their toes and an imprint of a memorableoccasion spent on Porretto Beach is our mission. With all of our regular guests and clients support we areable to continue this fete. Please experience our efforts and operations before false assumption orjudgment is placed unfairly upon us due to a political agenda we have no interest in. Thank you!
