Some Of The Cleanest And Clearest Water Can Be Found At New Jersey’s 96th Street Beach
New Jersey doesn’t have one clean beach…we’ve got several. Our water quality along the shore is consistently ranked among the best in the US! While we do have a few beaches that could use a boost, The Natural Resources Defense Council found 35 Garden State beaches that have met water quality standards at least 98 percent of the time over the past five years. And not only do they meet water quality standards, they significantly exceed them! These beaches include 40th Street beach in Avalon, Sea Isle City at 40th Street, Upper Township at Webster Road, Wildwood Crest at Orchid, Margate at Washington, Point Pleasant Beach and Stone Harbor at 96th Street, which we’re focusing on today.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
This is the kind of town you fall in love with. After all, they make it so easy. If you’re in the area, visit neighboring Avalon – and be sure to stop at Mallon’s Homemade Sticky Buns if you have a sweet tooth.
