Surf City Residents & Visitors are now able to register for seasonal parking permits through Pivot Parking!
What do the seasonal parking permits include?
- No-cost parking at any of the designated town-owned parking lots
- Season passes valid April 1st – October 15th from 9am – 5pm, daily
In addition to the parking permits, island homeowners are also encouraged to register online for a Hurricane Re-Entry Decal that will replace the current Key Card system. Decals will be placed on your car windshield to assist in a more efficient island re-entry process.

Driving on the beach is permitted only from September 10th - March 15th for fishing purposes only.
