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.

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/

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.
