I have avoided the Jersey shore for years and here is my reason why: my son has never been to the shore & has constantly complained that I have never taken him. Well took him. We walked out of the water to find many pieces of broken glass in the sand. Thankfully we didn't cut our feet. Now I know... More

I have never been to this beach before so I can only review on what I see. I had heard that Sandy hit the town/beach hard and it seems accurate upon visiting. I went mid-day on a Monday. The "boardwalk" (I use quotes because it's on pavement, but still charming) was mostly closed and under construction although some games/food were... More

We've never gone there to swim or spend the day - but we love to stop by and visit when we go to the amusement area. The kids put their feet in the water and look for shells/fish. Since Hurricane Sandy it's really easy to get to near the fishing pier. There was a steep slope but now it's much... More

I just went to this beach after someone referred me to it. I was in North Jersey and was told that this beach is much closer than the more famous Sandy Hook beaches. Its 45 min closer than Sandy Hook but not nearly as nice. The beach is free but parking on the street is very expensive because it is... More

I grew up going to this beach every summer. I really particularly care for the beach but I really enjoy walking the strip, riding the rides, eating and playing the games.

All I have to say about this beach is that clearly no one takes care of it. There is broken glass everywhere and dead fish of all sorts on the beach. No Lie. This place also got hit hard by Sandy so it is still rebuilding.

I've been going to Keansburg beach for 55 years, and let me tell you, for what it is, a small amusement park, it is one of the best for a cheap day out! Sure, back in the 1960's when I was growing up, it was clean, fenced in, and you had to pay to get on the beach. The boardwalk... More

Pay for your parking and go have some fun on the rides and some good food. Steak sandwiches and fries are plentiful. Fun place for the kids and not too far from central Jersey.
