As University of Georgia students head down to Jacksonville for the Georgia-Florida game this weekend, don’t forget that Glynn County for the second year in a row has banned alcohol at St. Simons Island beaches, including the notorious Frat Beach.

Police will be patrolling the area and enforcing the ban, as well as the underage drinking law, according to a news release from Glynn County.

The release also advised drinking beach-goers to take Uber, Lyft, a taxi or a shuttle, and to stay on the sidewalk when walking.

In addition, it urged partiers to clean up after themselves. UGA students routinely leave Frat Beach trashed during the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, endangering wildlife and the fragile coastal ecosystem. Throw your empty bottles and cans away or carry them with you if you can’t find a trash can or recycling bin.

Keep the Golden Isles beautiful has organized a beach cleanup Saturday at 7:30 a.m., and the public is invited to participate.

Unable to legally close the beaches, Glynn County implemented the alcohol ban last year in an effort to discourage crowds during the COVID-19 pandemic.
