You reading this, and I both know that Ocean County has some of the best beaches in The Garden State. Heck, it's literally called OCEAN county.

So I was a bit disappointed to read the list of the 15 Best Beaches in NJ from The Crazy Tourist - because out of the 15 beaches that made the list, only 3 were from Ocean County. That's not okay.

The beaches that got the recognition they deserve are Point Pleasant, LBI, and Lavallette. It looks like parking, attractions, and closeness to NYC were factored in the decision-making.

I'm going to take the liberty of adding a few more of our amazing Ocean County Beaches to the list, but before I do, check out The Crazy Tourist's Full Top 15 List:

  • Asbury Park Beach
  • Point Pleasant
  • Long Beach Island
  • Spring Lake Beach
  • Cape May
  • Belmar Beach
  • Ocean Grove Beach
  • Lavallette Beach
  • Sandy Hook Beach
  • Wildwoods
  • Seven Mile Beach
  • Avon by the Sea
  • Atlantic City Beach
  • Fisherman’s Cove
  • Keansburg Beach

Now for the fun part. Keep scrolling to see the Ocean County Beaches that were forgotten on the list.
