If you are looking for pristine, quiet beaches to relax, revitalize, or frolic in the sun with friends and family, Ocean Grove is for you. The chance to just lie in the sun, get some summer reading done, or watch the kids play in the surf is great release from the stress of everyday life. A nice walk or jog on the beach as the sun comes up over the Atlantic isn't bad, either. Plus, dogs are allowed (on a leash) during the off-season, October 1st through May 1st. Summers are also filled with fun beach activities such as a sandcastle contest, boogey board and inner tube races, kite flying contest, volleyball games, Lifeguard competitions and much more!
