Walk just one short block from the Sunburst Motel and you will find yourself on our pristine white sand beach. Seaside Heights' beach is machine groomed every morning to offer you the finest beach at the Jersey Shore.
Seaside Heights is proud of it's long history of dedicated Beach Patrol. All beaches have lifeguards on duty for our visitor's safety weekdays until 5PM and on weekends until 9PM.
Be sure to visit Seaside's Bayside! "Down at the bay" you will find boat, kayak, paddleboard and jet ski rentals and two public docks for crabbing and fishing.
A short walk from the Sunburst Motel is newly named "Sunset Beach" - the bay beach is a great spot to bring small children, the water is shallow and there is a designated swimming area with a lifeguard on duty. The bay beach is also dog friendly, and as it's name boasts...a great spot to gather and watch the sunset from the bay front boardwalk and gazebo or while fishing on the dock.
BREAKWATER BEACH WATER PARK
Only two short blocks from the Sunburst Motel is Breakwater Beach, the Jersey Shore's premier water park. There is something for everyone at Breakwater Beach kids and adults alike. Get your adrenaline pumping on the Aqua Drop Freefall or just hop in a tube and float down the lazy river. Breakwater Beach also has a kiddie area, a wave pool.
ISLAND BEACH STATE PARK
Just a short drive south down Route 35 from Seaside Heights you will end up at Island Beach State Park. The Park is a preserved barrier island that contains close to ten miles of sandy beach, an extensive shoreline along Barnegat Bay, dense maritime forests, rolling sand dunes, and tidal marshes.
Island Beach is also home to foxes, turtles, ospreys and other wildlife. The majority of visitors to Island Beach State Park go to surf and swim in the ocean or surf fish from the beach. Four wheel drive vehicles with special permits are allowed to drive on the beach to fish. Island Beach has two swimming areas with lifeguards on duty. Note that only the unguarded beaches are dog friendly.
If you decide to visit IBSP on a busy weekend be aware that the park closes when it reaches capacity. Wake up a little early, its worth it! When you are at the park please remember to stay off the dunes and don't feed the foxes!
