I am unable to find a law which requires that Resort Hotels provide beach access across their private property. All beaches are public, accessible from the water, for 15 feet beyond mean high tide.
That being said. Any Resort Hotel which is an EDC beneficiary agrees to provide free access to the beach via a designated route across their property. They are not required to provide free parking or free beach chairs. The Buccaneer is an EDC beneficiary. If you take a taxi or park outside of the Buccaneer property they should allow you to walk to the beach across their property at no charge. As for what they charge for parking and chairs, that would be up to them.
