Shhhhh, don't tell anyone, but this is a great place to enjoy the sun and water. A quiet family beach, it's clean and free of boom-boxes, very conducive to a good seaside read. The water is crystal clear and inviting.

We are biased because we have a house here but frankly have travelled all over and the sand in SSP is the best on the Jersey Shore! In season this beach and Island Beach State Park ARE the best! 👍💪🏻😎

Get to the beach early to claim your spot on the sand. Gets very crowded on the weekends. Usually pretty clean beach as well.
