Beautiful, clean beach -- you don't have to walk a mile or more to get there... try it! Beach is close to the boardwalk, beautiful homes, nice places to eat -- just an all around perfect place to be!

My son and I drove the 40 minutes after work and school on a Friday in early September and we had one of those magical afternoons at the Jersey shore when the water is warmer than the air and the beach is fairly deserted. We spent a lot of time in the surf, which was fun but not frightening for... More

At least that's the impression each year when we spend a few days there. It's a great town to walk around, and a nice uninterrupted boardwalk. The beach is wide enough and overall relatively quiet. The fact there are only two restroom facilities located far apart (north and south) does not encourage a lot of day visitors, and for us... More

Not sure if this was the Washington Street Beach but it was the beach by the South End Pool Building. Rest Rooms, little beach shop, and sandwiches, Soft drinks, etc sold there. I went to see what the drink offered were. The case is past the end of the counter. Some old woman with dark hair started yelling at me... More

I have been to quite a few beaches all over the world and never have I experienced this. First, I will start by saying I was already annoyed that they have the nerve to charge $10 per person. I am all about free beaches. But I get that they need to pay summer police/beach patrol and I assumed that money... More

I took my daughter to this beach a few weeks ago on a weekend. I had no issues with finding parking spots but I did arrive early at 10am. The price for a daily beach pass this season is $10 per person. Coolers are not permitted and you will be asked to keep it on the boardwalk which can be... More

Start your day with some fresh and clean air from the ocean. It's wonderful to see how many people taking care of themselves and do some aerobic activity on the beach. The new boardwalk after "Sandy" storm is very nice.

The beach was nice, BUT.... This town is NOT what I was looking for while on a weekend at the beach. You can't bring food or coolers on the beach, there are no bars in town, none of the restaurants serve alcohol. All of the shops on Third Ave are boutiques and way out of our price range. Holy cow,... More
