The City of Sanibel announced Tuesday afternoon the closure of Blind Pass Beach Park effective Wednesday, June 15 out of concern for public safety. Since May, the shoreline at Blind Pass Beach Park has gradually eroded and a steep escarpment has developed at the end of the beach access paths making public access to the water unsafe.

The escarpment can reach up to 6 feet at times and extends from the Blind Pass Bridge south to near Castaway Cottages. The city said conditions will be monitored at Blind Pass Beach Park and will reopen it when the public can safely access the beach again. Here are other beach park locations on Sanibel.
