Orange County beach parking lots are closed — despite people being allowed on the sand — in order to keep crowds from getting too large.

“It’s an effort for people to stay in their neighborhoods,” Braun said. “We’re taking an education approach first and volunteer compliance. No reports of any large-scale issues.”
