This serene beach town is a no-brainer for being on this list.

What makes it unique is that it's one of the few spots in Jersey with a 'naked' boardwalk, according to World Atlas.

Keep your pants on by the way, that just means it's one of the few boardwalks without any shops, games, or rides. Just great views.
