  • Perfect beach with little to no crowd. Free parking. Bathrooms were closed. Dogs are allowed. Water is not the cleanest but I was happy to have a lot of space on the beach.
  • Our community beach which has seen a lot more visitors in the recent years is a local gem. Since it's a township beach it is raked at least once per week in the Summer months. Residents and visitors can help keep it clean by taking their trash with them when they leave. Cans are located in the free parking lot. It is policed more frequently on the weekend. Tickets and warnings have been given to those not abiding by the ordinances. No dogs, bbq, fires, alcohol, etc. 2 clean ocean action sweeps each year happen in April and October. Shower is located to the right of occasionally opened restrooms. Respect the beach and the neighborhood. Keansburg is north of Ideal beach and allows the above mentioned that are not allowed on this Middletown beach. Enjoy the City view and the calm bay water...Sandy Hook, a federal park, is 15 minutes east on 36!
