Back in the day, before air-conditioning, the Internet and jet travel, New Jersey was a summer destination for many seeking relief from the heat of summer, drawing from New York and Philadelphia.

The Jersey Shore continues to thrive as an artisan hub as well as a party-capital for singles due to its abundance of beaches and boardwalks. Monmouth County saw two of its beaches listed in the top 10, Bradley Beach and Manasquan, with Asbury Park in the top 15.  “The Jersey Shore is lined with over 40 different towns and communities, each with a different character and flavor. Many cater extensively to summer tourists, others are completely full-year residential communities, while some are a mix of both.” [Wikipedia]

21 beaches in Monmouth
3 beaches in Middlesex
21 beaches in Ocean
5 beaches in Atlantic
10 beaches in Cape May

In 2018, visitation to New Jersey was up 7.4% from 2017 to 111 million people and  the beaches are the big reason why. Recently the top 10 beaches in New Jersey were listed in an article, featuring these locations:

  1. Cape May
