It's never too early to purchase your beach badges.

Many beaches are using the Viply app for seasonal and daily badge purchases. This app is free, really easy to use, and makes contactless transactions possible. Plus, when beaches become full, the app will let you know before you go.

Demand for beach badges were so great that Spring Lake sold out of their initial batch in January. They put more up for sale in February.
