The Underrated Beach With The Whitest, Most Pristine Sand In New Jersey

New Jersey has countless beautiful beaches along our 130 miles of coastline and I strive to visit as many as possible. Some are small, sleepy beaches tucked away down a sandy path. Others are made for the masses with so much to enjoy. This beach falls somewhere in between. It’s certainly not tiny or hidden but it is a beautiful natural oasis that visitors love. Still, it sometimes gets passed by in favor of neighboring beaches (like Seaside Park) with big boardwalk attractions. Here’s what you need to know about Island Beach State Park.

Yes, this is New Jersey. You don’t need to travel down to the Carribean for beautiful white sand beaches. Have you been to Island Beach State Park yet? You can visit daily from sunrise to sunset. There is an entrance fee of $6 per vehicle between Memorial Day and Labor Day for New Jersey residents. For more of New Jersey’s best beaches, check out this list.
