Summer is nearly upon us, bringing the return of filming restrictions for L.A. County Beaches.

All Los Angeles County owned and operated beaches including properties located in the City of Marina Del Rey, will be off-limits for weekend filming beginning Saturday, May 19th through Sunday, September 9th.

The Department of Beaches and Harbors has also announced that no beach filming may take place on Friday, May 25th through Tuesday, May 29th, in anticipation of Memorial Day Weekend.

Venice Beach filming and still photography is restricted at the Breakwater tower and on all Avenue towers (Ave 18 through Ave 26) on both weekends and weekdays for the same time period.  Zuma and Surfrider beaches will be closed to filming and still photography on both weekends and weekdays as well.

The Department of Beaches and Harbors will continue to review all requests for base-camping and crew parking at the Zuma Beach parking lot on a case-by-case basis for weekday use only, although the beach itself is closed.
