What a lovely beach...very clean...very nice people..a little pricey but it is Spring Lake....you can have drinks on the beach but food must be eaten up on the boardwalk. We really enjoyed it.

I would highly recommend this beach to anyone looking for a relaxing day on the beach. The beach areas are divided into sections for swimming and surfing. They do not allow food or drinks on the beach which keeps the beach very clean. If you bring a cooler you can keep it on the boardwalk. It is 10.00 per person... More

Our family went for the day and enjoyed the beauty all around us. It cost $10.00 each for adults and kids were free. Parking was easily accessible and free.

Very relaxing and soothing atmosphere. Not crowded at all (although I visited mid-week at noon) and clean. Non-metered parking. Only drawback - food and drinks not allowed on beach although I did see a few beach goers with snack bags/water tucked away. Lots of surfers; lifeguards were watchful of waves, especially with the kids. Perfect weather for a perfect beach... More

No young teenagers or abnoxiuous people. Just a great calm and relaxing atmosphere. Definetly my favorite NJ beach (along with Cape May). Just wish that you could at least bring drinks on the beach (non alcoholic drinks I mean). Besides that, the beach is calming and beautiful. Very clean:)!!!!

Washington Ave beach was tranquil and stunning the week before MMD WE. It is also a little less crowded then Belmar Beach in the summer but they do not allow food or beverages on the beach.

Even though it was only in the 60's we still got to sit on the beach which was immaculate. Loved watching the ocean while sitting in the sand.

Spring Lake beaches , no coolers, no food, no drinks of any kind on the beach. Check with the Spring Lake PD to see if that rule is still in effect for the upcoming season. If so go to Belmar, 2 blocks in from the beach no meters to feed. Same nice sand family friendly.
