21st Street (Avalon)

Avalon, New Jersey

This beach is located in the seashore resort of Avalon, where the slogan "Cooler by a Mile" represents the borough's location on the Atlantic Ocean. With its calm water, natural dunes, and spacious beach area, Avalon's beach has been described as, "the best beach in New Jersey". Beach badges are required for all visitors over the age of 12. They can be purchased on the beach or from Community Hall. Restrooms can be found at various access points along the beach as can parking. Lifeguards are on duty during the swim season.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
