The city’s beach pass for resident individuals is $40 and nonresident individuals is $80.

The economy plan, which allows 10 admissions to the beach during the season, is $80.
The beach day pass is $12.

Passes went on sale Monday at the gazebo across from the entrance to Long Beach Ice Arena at 150 West Bay Dr.
