This article will focus on those holes made by marine animals. The Georgia ghost shrimp live underneath the sand near the water’s edge and are rarely seen (thus the name).

A Message from our GM

Spring has sprung and so has our tourist population. Spring break brought some of the biggest crowds we have seen at this time of year, and we were able to squeak by with a tentative Town approval on the dune walkway and bathroom renovation in time for a ribbon cutting on March 25th. The cutting honor was a well-deserved combo of ARB Chairman Joe Strivieri and Chris Bracken the Sonesta  Director of Sales and Marketing who both helped with contract supervision and site logistics to make this project happen.

 Owner Updates Courtesy of Your POA Management Team Please pick-up after your pets! We know that this has been mentioned before, but it continues to be a problem throughout the community. Get your waste bags from the Dogipot stations and dispose of used bags at home or in appropriate trash receptacles. Please do not litter the ground with them. Also, be good neighbors and refrain from walking pets on others’ property. We have had several questions regarding lagoon levels. There is work underway in the Beachwalk lagoon, and that may have a minor impact. However, lack of rain is the main contributor. We will …
