The Borough of Avalon has partnered with Viply to provide another way for residents and visitors to purchase seasonal beach tags for the upcoming summer season. The seasonal beach tags are available via mobile app for smart phones for both Apple and Android devices.
Individuals who are interested in reserving seasonal beach tags simply download the mobile app, purchase the requested number of seasonal beach tags, and pick up the actual beach tags upon their visit to Avalon from any beach tag checkers or at the Avalon Beach Tag Booth located at 30th Street and Avalon Avenue, which opens April 1st. To redeem the tag, the customer presses “scan now” in the Viply app and points the camera at the QR code displayed by the beach tag checker or at the booth. The phone will then display how many beach tags were purchased and the tags will be handed to the customer.
All sales are final and no refunds will be offered; a small service fee will be applied for each transaction. Avalon offers seasonal beach tags at the preseason rate of $23 through May 31st; on June 1st, the price of a seasonal beach tag increases to $28 for the balance of the season. Beach tags may be purchased via the Viply app anytime now through the end of the season.
Individuals may view the Viply Pass Avalon Beach Tag app at www.viplypass.com/avalon-beach-tags/.
The Avalon Beach Tag Booth will be open weekends starting on April 1st from 10:00am through 4:00pm; the Booth opens for the season daily starting on May 1st. Beach tags are required for all individuals 12 years or older between the hours of 10:00am until 5:00pm from May 27th through September 4th, 2017. Daily and weekly tags will be available starting May 27th; daily tags cost $6, and weekly tags costs $12.
Avalon is proud to offer free seasonal beach tags to all veterans of the United States Armed Forces. Active duty military members and their immediately families also may enjoy the beaches without a beach tag.
Avalon is currently rebuilding the north end beaches from 9th Street south to the border of 30th Street courtesy of a beach fill project that will place nearly 1 million cubic yards of sand on the beach.
