First of all, the numerous descriptions of where Fisherman's Cove is located.........are not helpful. What is the "inlet side" of an inlet? To folks, like me earlier today, laboring to figure out where this beach is located, here is some hopefully more helpful location info:
= This dog beach, Fisherman's Cove, is.......not.......on the ocean, however ocean beaches near the inlet are dog accessible from Oct. - April 1
= North side of Manasquan Inlet and the park is on the shore of the inlet
= West or slightly inland from the mouth of the inlet by about 3 or 4 blocks
= Across the inlet from the Point Pleasant parking lot where everyone sits in their cars and watches the boats come in......and slightly west by about 1 or 2 blocks
= 383 3rd Ave, Manasquan, NJ 08736.........(732) 922-4080
= Just get to the Manasquan beach with your car, turn south until you can't go any further because of the inlet and then follow the street by the inlet west or to-the-right and you will run right into the Fisherman's Cove Park because it butts right up against the street that runs along the inlet
Now, the park itself:
Leashed dogs are the rule, but there appears to be a small measure of flexibility. We visited here Easter Sunday, 2014, and it was wonderful despite the cold air from the ocean. My 10 lb Perth Amboy, NJ rescue, Oscar, loved running along the water and greeting the few dogs on the beach a bunch!
You will love this dog beach and so will your canine companion. There are turns that you can't see around in the beach layout so it is a multidimensional walk vis a vis a straight line beach plus you will be looking across the inlet at all the commercial fishing boats plus all the boat traffic coming in the inlet, a visual treat that doesn't stop.
Don't hesitate, you will love this dog park/beach, for its great reputation is well deserved.
