Very relaxing and soothing atmosphere. Not crowded at all (although I visited mid-week at noon) and clean. Non-metered parking. Only drawback - food and drinks not allowed on beach although I did see a few beach goers with snack bags/water tucked away. Lots of surfers;...More

No young teenagers or abnoxiuous people. Just a great calm and relaxing atmosphere. Definetly my favorite NJ beach (along with Cape May). Just wish that you could at least bring drinks on the beach (non alcoholic drinks I mean). Besides that, the beach is calming...More

Washington Ave beach was tranquil and stunning the week before MMD WE. It is also a little less crowded then Belmar Beach in the summer but they do not allow food or beverages on the beach.

Even though it was only in the 60's we still got to sit on the beach which was immaculate. Loved watching the ocean while sitting in the sand.

My judgement averages the good impression of the beach and water against the fact that you are charged 10$ to enter (too much for a family!) and that the baywatch team is too oppressive..... They did not even allow us to walk on the rocks....

Trip advisor and most of the reviewers on here are ill-informed. Visitors to Spring Lake should be aware of this before visiting. This beach used to be much quieter before the internet ruined everything and told all the obnoxious tourists about it.
