Are you permitted on the beach after hours to walk? We would not be going in the water.... thanks!
I found this as having been adopted in 2017::
"The beach in Seaside Heights will have more lifeguard coverage, until 9 p.m. on weekend nights during the summer season that starts with Memorial Day weekend, but will be completely closed off to the public during off-hours, except to fisherman. Beach tags will be required during the open hours."
Thank you... didn’t realize this until after I booked a vacation for my family... my son will be disappointed...
I'm confused. You booked a vacation down the shore but only want to touch the sand after hours?
Seaside Heights does have random night time activities. If you can not find it on the internet, contact them:
Also, don't forget, Seaside Park is a separate town and right next to Seaside Heights.
To go beyond what JJ said, if you want to walk the beach after hours just drive a few blocks down the Seaside Park. I think they stop requiring beach badges after 5 or 6pm but the beach is still open.
Parts of New Jersey shore that we have visited certainly allow people on the beach after lifeguards have left. But do not swim. Most reported drownings are after hours swimming. The New Jersey shore is some of the best beach in the world, but the ocean is NOT a pool. If you go to Belmar and other beaches you will certainly see surfers out after hours, but always in groups. Why not go during the day and get in the water? Warm this time of year and beach badges not that expensive.
We are planning on going during the day.... guess I should have made it more clear.... my son wants to be able to go after hours with hopes to see the ghost crabs at night... he tries to catch them... thank you all for the responses!
