Anyone wanting to take to the beach with their vehicles at Cape Hatteras National Seashore in North Carolina will need to pay for a permit and complete a short educational video, based on new rules set to take effect next month.
The National Park Service has finalized the rules, which will begin to be enforced on Feb. 15.
They are designed to allow visitors access to the beach, but in limited numbers, and to protect and preserve the environment of the area.
The exact fee has not yet been set, but according to the National Park Service, people can expect to pay $90-$150 for a yearly permit and $30-$50 for a permit good for a week. The required video is seven minutes long and will be viewable at any of three places: Coquina Beach, Buxton Vistor Center and Ocracoke Visitor Center
