My husband and I visited this beach after coming to Manasquan, NJ from York, PA for another errand. Although the beach was clean and not terribly crowded, the fee to access the beach for a couple hours seemed absurd. It costs $9 each for a...More

Odd little beach town. In the summers the local police run numerous speed traps and like to give summer visitors bogus violations that improve the towns cash flow. Mostly white community, which like Sea Girt, has few visitors of color. Watch the speed limits closely.
