Looking to soak up the sun in New Jersey this summer without putting too much of a dent in your wallet? You've seen some of the pricier beaches in Jersey, here's your list of some of the cheaper beaches:

Free Beaches:

Atlantic City

Considering the amount of money you'll be pouring into the slot machines, it works out pretty well that you don't have to pay anything to get on the beach.

Cape May Point State Park

Cape May is home to some of my favorite beach memories, I find it to be one of the more relaxing beaches I've been to. Soak in that Vitamin D on a beach that will make both you and your wallet happy.

Wildwoods Beach

Not only is this beach free, but there's also a dog beach for your pets!

$5 Daily Passes:

Asbury Park (on weekdays, $7 on weekends)

One trip to this beautiful beach and you'll understand why Springsteen named an album after it.

Barnegat Light Beach

Fun fact: the red and white light house in Barnegat Light has a name, "Old Barney!"


Brick has four beaches total (one is riverfront), which translates to four times the fun!

Sea Isle City

After a day at the beach, you can stop by Sea Isle's Band Shell to see weekly movie nights, concerts, talent competitions and dances.

$6 Daily Passes:

Avalon Beach

NJ Beach tip: Avalon beach tags are also honored at Stone Harbor beaches.

Seaside Heights

See if you can make it one minute before you hear someone make a "Jersey Shore" reference, I dare you. That awful show aside, the beach is a lot of fun.

Stone Harbor Beach

This beach is so great that someone made a list of reasons why it's the best town on the Jersey Shore.
