Great very wide beach. Umbrella and chair rentals available. Restaurant and bar. You are permitted to bring your purchased drinks to the beach - one at a time. Family oriented. Would highly recommend. Restrooms and showers - very clean and no charge.

The boardwalk and beach were both clean and well kept. The ocean view was gorgeous! There were plenty of seats and benches to relax on and watch the waves.

Jenk's is a very well run beach. They care about their seasonal badge holders, as well as daily visitors. They respect the quiet and relaxation that most beach visitors desire. And, in turn, they have areas set aside for sports and bars and restaurants and...More

The place is around 40 miles from Princeton, NJ. We went there on a Friday afternoon and spent the evening here. It has a lot of good food and drinks joints. Boardwalk alongside the beach makes the place enjoyable even in the evening.

How much should a family of 4 expect to spend for a morning/afternoon outing at the beach and boardwalk? Parking, food, games etc? We are coming in from out of state and are trying to budget. Thanks!

I don't think so. Never saw any dogs on beach or boardwalk. Maybe if you go off season.
