The Falmouth selectmen unanimously voted to approve a new set of beach regulations at their meeting on Monday, June 4.

The rules bar animals and pets on the beach between May 1 and October 1; ban alcoholic beverages, fires, grills, smoking, vaping, littering and feeding the wildlife; and bar using watercraft, fishing or scuba diving from the swim area during beach hours. The rules also regulate the size of tents, allowing those up to 10 feet by 10 feet in size, and allow activities like ball playing, kite flying and beach games at the lifeguard’s discretion.
