Nearly seven years ago the DIPOA BOD transferred ownership of the West Surf Beach to the Town of Dauphin Island to hopefully secure a comprehensive shoreline project for that strip of beach (the three mile stretch of shoreline south of the private homes/lots from approximately Pirates Cove Street to the West End of Bienville Boulevard).  

January 16, 2016 marks the end of that transfer period with no shoreline project reconstruction, so the West Surf Beach once again becomes a private beach owned by the DIPOA. 

There will be signs going up soon at the four access points along the West Surf Beach, to notify visitors that this will become a private beach and parking will be allowed by permit only, effective Janury 16, 2016. If you have concerns or suggestions related to the pending deadline, parking, trash  collection, signage, public access, etc, please contact the DIPOA Board of Directors via email
