There are a few nice motels on Route 35 off of Exit 117 on the GSP. As you exit take Rte-35 instead of Rte-36. I think one may be a Best Western or such. It is closer to 117 than the shore so you will not pay summer prices, and it is within 4 miles of the beach which is off of Route 36. That, I think is your best bet. Happy Summer -

There are a number of hotels and motels on both Routes 35 and 36. Also, there are number of motels and hotels as you travel south toward Manasquan.

If it is not a great beach day, you can tour the old fort area at Sandy Hook. Farther south on routes 35/71 there are boardwalks (Spring Lake/Sea Girt area, Manaquan area, and Pt Pleasant area)with the usual shops and eateries.

Enjoy your visit to the beach!!

I'm going to Gunnison this Wednesday for the first time. I'm from MN, but I'll be in NJ and will have that day off for beach going. I've been to several nude beaches, including Haulover and Mazo Beach, so I know how to behave! :-)

Anyway, any advice from anyone? Anyone else going to be there. Nude beaches are always more fun with a group. Thanks in advance. AG (nudistphd@yahoo.com)

Just go and be yourself. People are friendly. It's easy to strike up a conversation with other beach goers. You'll enjoy the beach and it's friendly confines. Have fun!

I am interested in going to Gunnison Beach on a weekday. I don't have a car and would like to go there by public transportation. I was told there is a bus that would take me to the entrance of the park. Is that too far from the beach? What alternative means of public transportation do you know? Any information on this would be appreciated.

It is about five miles if not more from the front entrance of Sandy Hook to Gunnison's Beach. I'm not aware of any shuttle services within Sandy Hook. Perhaps sending an email to gateway nat'l parks office that supervises Sandy Hook, the rangers may be able to give you some info on Sandy Hook transportation.

good luck!!

first time!

hi, I am considering going to gunnison beach this weekend for the first time along with my family. My wife and I are in our early 40's, and we have two daughters in their mid teens, one is 15 and the other is 17. My question is that this is our first time going to one of these places, and we dont really know the policies for taking children. My daughters are corcerned that they will be the only young people their, and it will be like hanging at a old age home. Would it be best to leave them home, or is it a normal occurence to see young men and women their age at gunnison beach.

thanks.

I go to gunnison's frequently. There are families who visit the beach. The beach is clothing optional so both adults and kids may or may not be in the nude. To be honest, the percentage of children or those under 18 is small. The families that do visit the beach seem to enjoy themselves. It's a great beach; safe. The beach area that is clothing optional is rather long. So it's ideal for walks. Hope this helps.

I took the plunge yesterday, going to my very first clothing-optional beach (or, for that matter, clothing optional ANYTHING). It really was quite fun. Swimming in the all-together just feels better. I was worried that I would be self conscious. And I was - for about seven seconds. Next time I'm going to have to get some of my cowardly friends to come with.

Of course, I went on the day before Labor Day. D'oh! Does anyone know how late into the Fall they keep it open, and the best way of getting there once the ferries stop running (I live in NYC, by the way, so I don't have a car)? Or if there's a less expensive way of getting there than by boat ($25 here, $25 there, pretty soon it's real money)? Thanks!

corvus,

Gunnison's is open in the fall. However, it's my understanding talking with others on the beach who are from NYC that the weekend ferry stops Labor Day weekend. I was at Gunnison's Sunday--great day, but water was a bit rough.

Oh, that's what I enjoyed! I'm much more of a swimmer than I am a sunbather. The bigger the surf the better! I did notice that I seemed to be in the minority in that.

As far as I can tell, the ferry runs to Highlands after Labor Day. Anyone have any idea how to get from there to the beach? I understand it's like 5 or six miles - that's kind of a long way to trudge. Is there a bus or anything? Or at least a place to lock up my bike?

corvus there is a shuttle bus. It takes right to beach entrance. It's included in the price.

I went down the the SeaStreak ferry this morning. I asked the guy selling tickets if there was any kind of bus from Highlands to Sandy Hook. He said no. However, here, and on other web sites, I've heard tell of a shuttle bus. Does anyone know the real honest to god, done-it-myself gospel truth? I suppose a bike is a possibility, but that sort of limits what you can bring in. I didn't want to throw away $25 for no reason if I couldn't get to the beach, and - more to the point - I didn't want to get stuck in New Jersey clothed for four or six hours, so I didn't get on the boat.

Does anyone know what the clothing situation is out at Jacob Riis Park? That's where I ended up this afternoon. There were a few topless women and a couple of totally naked men. But they were all blanket huggers - no strollers or swimmers (not that there were many swimmers today - the surf was HUGE.) The vast majority of the denizens were clothed. My understanding is that, since the park is federal land and the federal government has no laws against public nudity, it's legal to be naked there. Is there a designated, or traditional, nude area that anyone knows about? Because, even though Sandy Hook is a bit nicer, it's much easier - not to mention CHEAPER - for most New Yorkers to get to Riis.
