9 Beautiful Beaches In New Jersey That You Can Enjoy For FREE

New Jersey has dozens of incredible beaches, but sadly most cost money. A simple trip to the beach can end up costing you a whopping $15 per person! You can save big bucks by purchasing seasonal passes, but free is always better. Our state has some secret (and not so secret) spots where you can score access to the shore without spending a cent. Many of these beaches are more laid back and have fewer amenities, but they’re still just as beautiful. Do you really need boardwalk access when you’ve got the sun, sand and sea to soak in?

Have you ever been to any of these beaches? Which is your favorite? Are there any other free beaches you can add to the list?
