Most stickers are issued under a few simple guidelines.

Q. Do I need a sticker?
A. Beach Parking Stickers are only required for parking your car in a town beach parking lot during the summer. You do not need a sticker if you walk, cycle, roller skate, get dropped off, take a taxi, etc. Also, you do not need a sticker from about the second week of September through mid-June.

Q. What are the simple guidelines?
A. A beach sticker is issued to a specific vehicle. A resident beach sticker requires the vehicle be registered to a Falmouth resident (at least 12 months) or a Falmouth property owner.

Q. I'm pretty sure I qualify, but how will you know?
A. We'll look at the name on your vehicle registration. It must match either the name on your real estate tax account, or your name in the town census records.

Q. I meet the simple guidelines. What do I need to do?
A. How to apply for a beach sticker:
  1. You may fill out an application and mail it to: Town of Falmouth, P.O. Box 904, Falmouth MA 02541.
  2. If you want a beach sticker you can apply in person at the Ellen T. Mitchell Bathhouse on Surf Drive starting Memorial Day Weekend.


Q. My registration shows a leasing company/business...", "my property is owned by a trust...", "I rent a cottage for the summer...", "I've got a time share...". What do we do?
A. You'll have to apply in person at the Ellen T. Mitchell Bathhouse Building on Surf Drive only. Bring relevant documentation, ie lease, rental agreement, trust beneficiary page, company business card, etc.
