I love this beach in long branch. There is a parking lot right there.There is no charge for kids 11 and younger. They have a snack bar and restrooms and outdoor showers. During the week, it doesn't seem as packed as some of the other jersey shores. I like to go here when all I want to do is go to the beach and not be worried about my kids asking me for money for rides or games. The only thing I don't like is the long lug with all my stuff from the parking lot, because the beach is wide there.
