Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park, Long Branch

#17 of 78 in Parks in Jersey Shore
In the summer, this 38-acre beach park is a great place to swim, sun and surf. In the off-season, a nice place for quiet walks. Everything needed to enjoy a day at the beach is readily available during the summer months: snack bar, sheltered eating areas, volleyball area, outdoor showers and changing areas, guarded swimming, designated areas for surfing. Light-weight cartop vessels such as kayaks or canoes may be launched but, boaters can not drive down to the beach and must carry their vessel from the parking lot to the water.

Please be aware that NJ anglers age 16 and up are now required to register with the NJ Saltwater Angler Registry (for free) to fish in marine and fresh tidal waters of NJ. For more information regarding the registration, click here.

  • Definitely a good beach to go to if you’re trying to avoid the crowds. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t get crowded, but it’s nowhere near as crowded as the more popular beaches. It’s a guarded beach which is nice. There are public restrooms and showers which are convenient after being in the sand and ocean all day. I really liked this beach, and would like to go back again at some point.
  • What a nice park. Well maintained, groomed and clean. Beautiful beach with convenient walkway to the sand. Great outdoor showers to rinse off and even concessions. Adults pay to get in, kids under 18 free. Great value and no parking hastles. If you have small kids, a real nice playground off the parking lot too.
