Ortley Beach, New Jersey: Family-Friendly Fun Along the Jersey Shore
Pretty much everything in Ortley Beach is within walking distance—it’s less than a square-mile in total area. Set on a long, thin peninsula along the Jersey Shore, the community has a pair of white-sand beaches, dubbed Ortley Beach, which are popular warm-weather hangouts. Both are staffed with lifeguards; each require paid beach badges during high season (June 16 through Labor Day).
Seaside Heights Boardwalk is also worth a visit. The mile-long boardwalk picks up just south of the beach and features plenty of family-friendly activities. Head further south and you’ll run into Island Beach State Park, home to miles of white-sand beaches as well as hiking and biking paths and large populations of shorebirds. You might even spot the occasional endangered piping plover along the park’s undeveloped beaches and dunes.
