Waves splashing ashore

A quiet respite after a day of lounging in the sun near the pavilion. Just a few feet away from the attractions on the pier.

I've lived in Monmouth County for more years than I will ever admit (born and raised). The 8th ave jetty and beach have been a fav area for years. Not only for the large beach but also fishing! Recently food trucks were added near the beach to accommodate the beach goers.

You can walk you dogs on the beach north of the boardwalk and below the jetty. Enter the beach at 8th street and make sure you are off the beach by 9am. You can also walk the dog(s) there in the evening.

The ocean , waves , salt , fresh air . Just breathe . A walk on the beach in Asbury Park is a sensation that fills the senses . It could be romantic or reflection , what ever the reason the ocean is calling . Just get out there , it's what this place is all about . Enjoy !

It is just a jetty, but it improves the look of the Asbury Park beach. After strolling along the boardwalk and popping in the shops, you can sit and meditate on the beach while taking in the beauty of the jetty.

It's a beautiful spot, Get off the boardwalk and walk the surf line. Don't go on the jetty. It is deadly slippery and the local will think you are a fool if you do.
