Hi Sully and Revampd, There is no "official" date when the beach opens, but the life guards don't go on duty till Memorial Day weekend, and work till Labor Day. You can go any time, but it is at your own risk. I'm not sure when season passes go on sale, and where, but they are always a better option if you go more than 5 times in a summer. Can't tell you the last time I didn't have a season pass. I figure there may be a nice day or two come April, but I usually head down in May, so I'll keep an eye out for you. Enjoy, Bare NJ

Yes, it is true there is no official opening date. However in the springtime, there might be cold breezes off the ocean; although it may be warm at home. Come prepared and pack a sweat shirt.

Hell,there are cold breezes off the ocean in August,sometimes!Sandy Hook's climate can be completely different than that of an area just a couple of miles inland.Windscreens are worth the bother on many days,and especially in the very early- and late-season.

Good Morning all !!

Well if it's a bit on the cool side JoAnn, I'll just turn it into a jogging day and go for a 6-8 mile run. Each time I was there I jogged (wear thongs for that, more stability down there !) to the clothes section (heading S of course) and back.

Wonder how far that is both ways, close to a mile possibly ??? The sand makes it feel like double the work/double the distance !!

The actual macadom jog/walk path that goes up most the island, anyone know how far that is if you do a loop?

So this really is the largest/most popular nude beach in the USA ??


Fishman or whoever ........Where do I buy those windscreens in the early part of season ? They avaible on the net somewhere?

BARENJGUY33, how much are season passes ?


Man, all of you are from Jersey, I have a 110 mile ride to get there but still, that would be considered still quite close being there are not many others around.

Jo Ann, you live in the Jersy devil area, you know, the "creature" that lurks in the swamps, ever see it ? In the 80's I used to ride at a motocross track in Blakwood and still on occassion go to the Off Road park down there.


I took my motorcycle here the 1st time, anyone have a bike ?

So if you see this bike (pretty bright, can't see how you can miss it!) or a tan Accord wagon (pretty rare) early in the season,
ya know I'm there!

Since they officially don't open till June, does that mean they don't clean/grade the beach till then? It was a mess in October once closed.

Are there any decent cheap motels near by ?

What about good restuarants/bars to have a Martini at once evening hits ? I don't drink beer much, takes too many to get a buzz and I get too bloated from them. Got to keep my flat stomach in shape

Yep, that what it means. They don’t clean or grade the beach until Memorial Day weekend, maybe a little earlier.

As for a cheap motel nearby, there is the Fairbanks in Sea Girt. http://www.fairbanksresort.com/

It’s ok, but not too cheap during the “season”.

As for a Martini, that’s a gamble. Do you like a Gin Martini or a James Bond Vodka Martini? Either one, the Fairbanks also has a decent, not great restaurant right out front. They do have a bar and can take orders somewhat directly. The restaurant is more Portuguese in cuisine. And not too bad at that.

Then again, you can always mix your very own Martini.

Duh, I almost forgot, the RT 36 bridge is UNDER MAJOR RE-CONSTRUCTION!

The traffic on the weekend is terrible if you want to go back on RT 36. Personally, I go straight towards Long Branch, use my GPS and take the long way around to get back on the highway. It is a bit of a trip and there could be traffic this alternate way too.

Season passes have been $50.00 for the past few years, haven't heard of any increase in the price for this upcoming season. I wouldn't be surprised if it did go up, with the way things are now. I know you can purchase one at the entrance once the season has started, but not sure where to get one before. Does anyone know if they sell them at the ranger station located on Sandy Hook? If I can get down there before Memorial Day weekend, I'd like to get one.

I was there in early May last year and the condition of the beach was fine... the weather was good too. My advice, if you have the chance to get out there, and we have a sunny warm day... go for it.

Sully,the distance from the northern end of Gunnison to the next warning sign to the south(the border of Fishing Beach)is right at one mile.It's a nice run,back and forth.I never go there without doing that.

And not all of us Gunnison-lovers reside in The Garden State!We have a 4-5 hour drive from Central NY,and still we manage many trips per season.

And as far as the RT.36 bridge,we haven't had a problem heading north after a beach day,but we stay until dark.The traffic out is hellish during the late afternoon,especially on a weekend day.At dusk,it's a piece of cake.

Thanks for all the great info everyone!

See you soon !!!

OH, one more ? ....Which section is the gay part, because I'm not gay and prefer the normal section and don't want to be "bothered" at all from them.

Well, I don't mind talkong to them, just don't want to be hit on like I'm looking for a male partner.

Would that be the south end ?

I never realized there was a "section" until I read it on here.

Sully,

I believe that the south end of the beach is where gay men tend to congregate more. That would be walking to the right as you face the water once you actually got on the beach. When you get there you'll see a lifeguard stand as you walk out onto the beach along with some volleyball nets. There will be a large crowd of people right in that area and this is where you want to go... just straight out from the walkway. Can't miss it. See you there... as soon as it warms up!
