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?

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/
