Sea Bright Beach

Locals know Sea Bright’s beach is one of the jewels of the Jersey Shore. Our coast line is graced with a number of beautiful beach clubs, numerous unprotected beach areas, and the municipal beach in the center of town. The municipal beach provides lifeguards and rescue personnel, plenty of parking, restrooms, and is located just a short walk to the many amenities Sea Bright’s downtown business district has to offer.

The Borough of Sea Bright requires beach badges at the municipal beach from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. For locations of the 7 public access stairways, click on the Public Access Map. Visitors, please obey all local parking rules and help us keep the beach clean by carrying out your trash.

The Borough of Sea Bright welcomes leashed dogs on the beach from September 15th to May 15th. (Dog walkers/owners are reminded that they are required to clean up after their pets.) Rules for the Beaches are found in Chapter 66 of the Code of the Borough of Sea Bright.

The municipal beach will open with supervision on weekends beginning Memorial Day Weekend (May 24/25/26), May 31/June 1, June 7/8, and June 14/15.

Thereafter, the municipal beach is open with supervision seven days a week. The official beach season ends on Labor Day, 9/1. Supervised hours of operation: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Junior Life Guard Program

The Sea Bright Beach Patrol will once again be hosting a Junior Lifeguard Program during the summer of 2014. The Lifeguard Supervisors Stuart Kiely, Jack Donleavy, and Kelly Megill will direct the program. This will be 7th season that Sea Bright will have the program. All Jr. Guard instructors are current members of Sea Bright Beach Patrol.

The program consists of water safety education including: recognizing and navigating rip currents, ocean hazards, tides, general knowledge of lifeguard duties, hands on instruction of lifeguard equipment, and the importance of keeping physically fit.

Registration is open to children between the ages of 9 and 16 who are able to swim in the ocean. Cost is $100.00 for 1 session or $150.00 for both. This includes S. B. Jr. Guard logo rash guard and bathing suit.
