Hello! I recently went to the Monmouth Beach club on a guest pass with a member. We went with our kids to the kiddie pool, but didn't go to the beach. Is that beach public - can anyone buy a tag? I found it was easy to park and looked like a nice, small beach. I'm wondering if I could go there and just buy a tag. Or if there is some other place to enter. Thanks!

(I don't want to ask my friend. She just had a new baby and I don't want to seem like I'm angling for an invite or the use of her pass)

I know those towns have certain access points to the beach marked "Public Access". I've seen a few of those. The trick might be where can you park a car?

Thanks! I guess I could drive around but I don't feel like it. LOL. When I went to the club with my friend it was actually very easy to park, that's why I was thinking of that beach. I like Sandy Hook but now they charge until 5pm instead of 4. The club entrance is on Valentine Street, it would be great if I could just pay at that entrance. Do the clubs actually have sections of the beach roped off for them? Or once you are on the beach it's all open?

Not sure how the private clubs work. We bought a season pass to Sandy Hook for $75 but only used it few times so far. sometimes on good weather weekends it fills up regardless.

My son still naps, so we don't do that many beach days. When he's older I might do the Sandy Hook pass, but I don't think we'll go much on weekends. My husband doesn't love the beach! So I might be able to just do days at the smaller beaches.

You might want to consider going down the street a short bit to Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park. It is part of the county park system, and has all the amenities, including rest rooms and plenty of parking. There is a small entrance fee (I believe it is $7 per adult, parking included). Great alternative to bothering your friend the new mom.
