Wonderful area to visit at the Jersey shore. Kids and pet of course loved it. Dogs must be leashed which is better for all. Then we went to the Riverside cafe facing the Inlet around the corner. Very very pet friendly offering Doggy happy meals....More

Great spot on the Manasquan River where one can swim with their dog or walk a few more steps and sunbath without the dogs. Great place to sit and watch the fishing boats coming and going out the inlet.

The beach is awesome and there are many responsible owners with leased dogs. BUT.... Unfortunately, I witnessed an off leash Rottweiler attack a small leashed dog. After the confrontation, the selfish woman continued to let her dog off leash. I was afraid to walk my...More
