Beach Amenities

Rules & Requirements

Please be sure to read the rules and requirements below for all your beach amenity passes. Failure to abide by these rules could result in the denial of amenity issuance or the revocation of privileges.

NOTE: ABI Deed-Mandated Lot Fees must be paid and current before amenity passes can be ordered. Beach passes are issued to all qualifying residents (including renters) who's deed-mandated lot fee accounts are current. Passes for vehicle parking, boat ramp access, dinghy dock storage passes, and watercraft rack storage passes are available at additional cost.

Access to Arden On The Severn's private beaches is for qualifying residents and their authorized guests ONLY. By paying the deed-mandated annual lot fee(s), qualifying owners and residents are entitled to ABI Beach passes. Renters who pay annual renter/boarder fee will be issued passes as long as the owner of the property qualifies and is current. Passes will not be issued to those who fail to pay.
