Bay Head Beach is a fabulous beach, it's very clean and family friendly. It's the perfect place to enjoy the beach and ocean between the more action packed Seaside Heights and Point Pleasant Beach.

great beach loved how quiet and calm it was not frenetic like Point Pleasant. Got badges from the Grenville Hotel so it was even better.

Well groomed and maintained beach with lifeguards and no Boardwalk. Had a great time riding in the waves and walking the beach.

Bay Head beach looked beautiful in early June. It is a wonderful town but not ideal for day trippers as they do not have bathrooms near the beach. This makes it a little less crowded during the summer months so check out their B & Bs for a weekend or week getaway.

Not over crowded, this bit of shore has shells, rocks and sand hills to climb. Very peaceful, and full of locals and tourists alike.

My wife loves to hunt for beach glass and we found enough to make her very happy. It was a nice weekend to get out although a bit chilly.

Clean, superb beach for New Jersey . The area is very beautiful to walk around. Make sure you know where to get the one day pass before going on the beach if your visiting because you'll need it. No food and drinks are allowed on beach, hence it cleanliness.
