Does anyone know of an empty beach where I can take my boys this summer? We really love the beach and now that they're big I don't take them anymore. Would love to know if anyone knows of one that is usually empty. Would be mid week not weekend.
Thanks!

I've gone Friday afternoon like 3-4 o'clock straight down cedar bridge and was only Jews there. Never tried during the week but assuming after 4-5 o'clock would be the same on weekdays

Im looking at google maps. Are you talking about Mantoloking bridge county park, or across the bridge by Ocean Ave?

U drive over the bridge and there's a traffic light. Turn right or left at the light and beach is right there. If u turned right make a left. If u turned left make a right

We go there every yr. The beaches do not empty out till 6- 6.30 and even then there are women in bikinis strolling till late. We always find an empty stretch and my boys are too busy in the water to notice anyone. Btw you cannot go on the beach until after 5 (lifeguard hrs) without a beach badge. Also mantoking and brick are crawling with police. We once got a huge ticket just by parking facin g the wrong direction. Basically, make sure to follow the rules. Another place is Windward Beach park. Again after lifeguard hrs thereis an official fenced off swimming section and more big boy appropriate as its full of frum families and little kids. Safer to swim there but doesnt have those huge surfing waves of the other beaches.

I take my boys to Mantoloking Its really close and quiet because there are no bathrooms or stores - so it isn't very touristy.
We go after 5:00 because it is quieter. You don't need badges after 5:00 or 5:30 in some areas.
You drive straight down Cedar Bridge until you cross a bridge and get to a light before the ocean. I turn right and drive a few intersections. Either you can turn left and park in a side street right off the beach with an access path or turn right and park on a side street and cross over.
Just don't sit too high up because there are dunes and peoples' property does go down into that area.
It is gorgeous and peaceful - I love it.
If you want to start your trip earlier in the day - Righ before the bridge on the left is a nice small park and a boat launch. People go crabbing there under the bridge. There is alos a look out area around the side of the bridge were you can watch boats or walk over the bridge. Its really nice.
During the day I don't think you can really find a quiet beach.
There are a lot of Jews there but if you walk a bit you can find an empty area.

This may or may not be up your alley, bit my friend with older boys takes her kids to the beach early in the morning, like 6:00-7:00 a.m. It's totally empty then, and a lot cooler. For me it would be way to early to get everyone up and out, though.

I wouldn't take your kids after lifeguard hours. Too risky. It would be less dangerous if there were no lifeguards and fewer people in the water. You could keep a better eye on the kids. When the water is full, it's hard to see if something is going wrong.

When we go there is almost no one in the water - its empty. I really only let my kids go in up pretty shallow. No swimming or deep wading at all. Its more about the ocean and sand and experience then going in far. My little kids just put in their ankles and are happy.

OP, I just have to laugh at your username! It's so appropriate!

Isn't there a "matching thread title to username" thread somewhere?

We go after hours and my little ones wear paddle jumpers even though they only put their feet in the water, I'd rather be safe than sorry. All they wanna do is play in the sand usually anyway. If they're not swimming I don't see the safety issue
