Was able to have a good walk at low tide and see nice sunrises each morning. There were people out fishing and on paddle boards each day.

I don't know what the official rules there are regarding smoking. I have seen a few people smoking there, including the lifeguards.

There is a municipal parking lot (fee) off of Island Beach Rd. Follow walking path to jetty/beach area.
