Elmer's Island open at noon today
Elmer's Island opens its beaches just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. They open at noon today. Road access to the Island opens 30 minutes before sunrise and closes 30 minutes after sunset Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Although the beach is open for the public now-- workers and State Officials continue to monitor the shoreline for any signs of oil. Elmer's Island was shut down in May of last year because of the BP oil spill.
