Looking for pristine, quiet beaches to relax, revitalize, or frolic in the sun with friends and family?  Then Ocean Grove is the place for you! The chance to just lie in the sun, get some summer reading done, or watch the kids play in the surf is a great release from the stress of everyday life. A walk or jog on the beach as the sun comes up over the Atlantic isn't bad, either. Plus, dogs are allowed (on a leash) during the off-season, October 1st through May 1st. Summers are also filled with fun beach activities such as a sandcastle contest, biathlon, family movie nights, and much more!

Ocean Grove offers relief from the crowds, commercialism, and noise of other New Jersey beaches. The charming downtown is only two short blocks from the boardwalk — convenient for a quick bite, early shopping, and your accommodations. Located in Monmouth County, this is a wonderful place to just enjoy the sand, sun, and waves. For the angler in the family, there is certainly a fair amount of New Jersey fishing in the area as well.

Beach Badges


Season and Weekly Beach badges can be purchased at the Beach Office located on the boardwalk at the end of Embury Avenue immediately across from the Fishing Pier when the beach is open.  Daily badges may be purchased at any beach entrance, cash only at the beach entrances.  Preseason sales are available at the 54 Pitman Ave. Administration building.
