New Jersey Beaches

Though the history, events, and gardens of New Jersey are all great attractions for visitors to the Garden state, the beaches in New Jersey are certainly the aspect of this state that draws in more tourists than anything else. The famed Jersey Shore has, for generations, been the place that many residents of New Jersey, New York City, andPhiladelphia have taken their families and friends for unforgettable vacations in the sun. The chance to just lie and take in the sun, get some summer reading done, or watch the kids play in the surf is a great release from the stress of everyday life. A nice walk or jog on the beach as the sun comes up over the Atlantic isn’t bad, either. New Jersey beaches are numerous and varied, and stretch all the way from New York City to Delaware. But what are the best beaches of New Jersey? That may be a matter of opinion, but here are a few that you might want to try.

Of course, the most popular beaches in New Jersey are found in Belmar, Bradley Beach, Avon By The Sea, Point Pleasant, Ocean City, Wildwood, Atlantic City, Cape May, and Seaside Heights. These all have plenty to offer, but what about some beaches that are a bit off the beaten path?

Spring Lake, New Jersey offers a nice, quiet beach that is a relief from the crowds of other New Jersey beaches. Located in Monmouth County, this is a nice place to take the family and just enjoy the sand, sun and waves. For the angler in the family, there is certainly a fair amount of New Jersey fishing in the area as well.

Brigantine offers six miles of New Jersey beaches that are just minutes from Atlantic City, but usually are less busy than other nearby beaches in New Jersey. This can provide a nice retreat from the loud New Jersey resorts and casinos found in Atlantic City. Come here, enjoy the beach for an afternoon, and head back to Atlantic City to get ready for the nightlife energized from your quiet day at the beach.

Another good option for families with younger children is to try the bay beaches in New Jersey. There are many inlets, bays, and barrier islands along the Jersey shore, and bay beaches mean clamer waters, less crowds, and shallow places for the little ones to swim without getting swept off their feet by the surf. Bayville and Margate are good places to find bay beaches in New Jersey.

As modern life becomes more and more fast paced, experiencing the simple power and beauty of the sea continues to provide a much-needed break, and New Jersey beaches are a simply a great place to go.
