One of the most beautiful beaches around and was close to where we were staying. Watch for tides or you could get wet quick! Beach goes for miles and miles. Nice jetty to walk on as well. Cant wait to go back in the Summertime.

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