Check out what they had to say about our beaches that made their list:
Ocean Grove Beach
A great spot if you’re looking for a quiet beach day, Ocean Grove Beach
(and the nearby boardwalk and town) is calm and relaxing making this beach
a popular choice for those in the know!
Point Pleasant Beach – Jenkinson’s Boardwalk
One of the most popular beaches in NJ, Point Pleasant Beach attracts a younger
crowd. Teens, twenty-somethings, and young families are creatures of habit here.
Bradley Beach, named after the small town it’s a part of, is another quiet beach
you can enjoy. With soft sand and beautiful waves, this beach even features a
playground close by - so you can enjoy beach views while playing with your kids.
There are also areas for volleyball and mini-golf.
It’s a midway point between the livelier Point Pleasant and the sentient
Bradley. The boardwalk isn’t as popular, but still offers your typical beach
fare such as burgers, fries, and ice cream.
Spring Lake Beach
This beach is quiet with a nice boardwalk that’s perfect for walking, running & jogging.
There is also a snack bar nearby for pizza and ice cream. But, unlike Sea Girt, restrooms
are available. Parking here is free and relatively easy to find. Be aware though, there
are restrictions on coolers and alcohol.
Check the website before going to avoid any hassle such as fines.
Asbury Park Beach continues to grow in popularity but remains a great
place to enjoy a day by the shore. It’s quite lively, but parking is a little
dicey and can get expensive if you’re trying to park closer to the beach.
The waves are big and the bathrooms are plentiful & clean. There are
great restaurants and a variety of food stands on the boardwalk as well.
Sea Girt Beach
Sea Girt Beach is one of the most private beaches you’ll find in NJ. Because
of that, it’s also one of the cleanest you’ll find in the area with plenty of space
to spread out. Just keep in mind that no eating, drinking, or playing music is allowed –
only ball-playing in designated areas. It’s so quiet and peaceful so if that vibe is
prerequisite this beach is right up your alley. No restrooms.
