Jersey Shore Beaches

Of course one of the main reasons for visiting the Jersey Shore is the beautiful, clean beaches.

Beaches along the Jersey Shore are some of the best in the world. Each town offers a different beach experience from the beach bars in Atlantic City to volleyball, fishing, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing and more.
Trip Advisor recently named Cape May the second-best best beach in the United States calling it "the antithesis of the Jersey Shore you’ll see on TV - instead of nightclubs and tanning parlors, you’ll find Victorian mansions and a famous lighthouse."

All of the oceanfront beaches at the Jersey Shore except Highlands, Atlantic City, Strathmere, North Wildwood, Wildwood and Wildwood Crest require beach badges in the summer. Beaches in Sea Isle City are free on Wednesdays. Most towns offer a discount if badges are purchased before June 1 and many towns offer free badges to military veterans. Badges can be purchased for the day, week or season.

Each town has its own regulations regarding what activities are permitted on its beaches. Some activities - like surfing and kayaking - are permitted only at certain locations within the town. It's best to check with lifeguards or the local police department.

Most towns provide restrooms and water fountains on or near the most popular beaches and some have showers right on the beach or boardwalk. Chairs and umbrellas can be rented in many towns.

New Jersey also has some of the cleanest ocean water in the world and is one of the few states that does year-round water-quality testing. Click here for Jersey Shore water-quality results.
