I am planning to propose to my girlfriend on Butterfly Beach at the end of May and wanted to know if it’s OK to have some wine  and a picnic on the beach while watching the sunset?  If alcohol is prohibited, is there an area nearby to that beach where you can have alcohol?

    Just do it. As Scott says Butterfly is not in the city. Doubt there will be a problem. People bring beer & wine there all the time.

    It appears the short answer is no.

    However, I believe the Biltmore is near by. it could make a nice place a to have drink.

    skip permission and ask for forgiveness if caught.
    this law was made as a way to deal with troublemakers.

    but it is always a good idea to enter a serious relationship on a sober note. best to you

    Can I have a party, wedding or reception on Butterfly Beach? [Also, consider having a drink at the Biltmore near sunset and then a walk on the beach to ask the wonderful and memorable question.]

    Yes, parties, weddings and receptions can be held on Butterfly Beach. There are no reservations because it is a county beach. It is on a first come first serve basis and as long as your party is not roped off, you may have tables, chairs, etc. There is no parking on Channel Drive from 2am to 5am daily. Alcohol is NOT permitted on the beach. Hope that helps. You can also call the Sheriff’s Department for any legalities questions.
