Ocean Grove beach is beautiful as is the little town. Lots of restaurants and shops. BUT, there is a parking problem all over the town. Even the inns have no parking for their accommodations.

I have been to every beach in NJ in the past 60 years. Ocean grove is nice and well kept but when your used to the US Virgin islands it is no where compared. Its the Atlantic Ocean. What can I say?

I live close to a few beaches and this is one of my favorites! Ocean Grove's family friendly atmosphere extends to the beach and its boardwalk. While it can get crowded during the summer months, I always have a relaxing time when I am here.

Just loved Ocean Grove with their new boardwalk and beautiful sand beaches. Very friendly people, bathrooms close by and free parking. I will surely stop by again. I just loved this seaside community.

If you ever want to see how the beaches should be at the Jersey shore, or if you long for the cape, go to this beach. It has beautiful dunes, a broad board walk and benches. Not far from good eateries. Wonderful off season also.
