Nice beach. Not a lot of people because you are swimming in the bay and the water is dirty. Expect to wash twice whatever you wear in the water. Lots of shells to pick up on the beach.

On the way back from spending a beautiful fall day at Sandy Hook we decided to check out Keansburg Beach. I parked in an area called Waterfront Park which had a 911 memorial and access to the beach and boardwalk. This is a nice clean looking local beach. Sure some of the boardwalk is a little weathered and some nails... More

Not fair to judge the beach by those 2012-2013 reviews. HURRICANE SANDY DID MAJOR DAMAGE! The shores have been trying to recover; it is nice to see one review mentioning that. But it is NOT helpful now that it is 2014 to see a reeview of this in 2012-23 "there was glass..." duh. Thats what a storm does, windows break!... More

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.
