Monmouth County’s 27 miles of ocean beaches are
clean, wide and downright spectacular.
They are nature’s ultimate playground.

Any day of the year, you’re liable to find waveriders in the
Atlantic. Bring your board and your enthusiasm to Manasquan,
Belmar, Sea Bright, Asbury Park, Deal or Long Branch. You’ll
find surf shops, equipment rentals, schools, seasoned locals
and endless waves. Summer’s warm waters make it easy to
enjoy, but the surfing season really gets started after Labor Day
when the Belmar Pro brings amateurs and big-name pros to
town. Check out www.belmarpro.com for event information.
Later in the fall, surfers don wetsuits and enjoy the big swells
that come with cooler water. Hardy folk say winter is the best
time to surf the Atlantic.
Save with an NJ TRANSIT
Beach Package that includes
round-trip train transportation and
beach admission in Long Branch,
Asbury Park, Ocean Grove,
Bradley Beach and Belmar.
