Life’s a beach…and Atlantic City’s clean, wide New Jersey beaches offer a variety of fun-in-the-sand activities this summer. Atlantic City beaches are free, too – no costly beach badges are needed. So grab your towel and sunscreen and head out for a day – or night – full of surfside activities.

There’s more to a day on Atlantic City beaches than swimming and sunbathing. If you’re ready for something more grab some gear and enjoy a few of these activities:

Surfing is permitted on three designated surfing beaches: Crystal Beach at New Hampshire Ave.; Delaware Ave. Beach; and Downtown Beach at Raleigh Ave. Lifeguards are not on duty at the surfing beaches, and surfers should not surf alone.
Surfing Lessons are available.

Kayaking & Windsurfing are both permitted at the Jackson Ave. beach. No lifeguards are provided at Jackson Ave. This is a no bathing zone designated for Kayaking & Windsurfing only. There are no rentals at this location so you must bring your own equipment.

Beach Volleyball nets are available at several Atlantic City hotels for their patrons’ enjoyment where informal pick-up games form regularly.

Boogie Boards and Body Surfing are permitted on any bathing beach when conditions permit. Please note that all boogie boards must have a leash.

Fishing is permitted on the jetties along the Oriental/Maine Ave. Boardwalk and in the inlet off of the Boardwalk. No fishing license is required for salt-water fishing in these areas. Atlantic City fishing is not permitted on the bathing beaches when lifeguards are on duty (10am – 6pm).

Grilling is permitted on the beach on Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day only. Grills must be charcoal briquettes; no gas grills or open flames are permitted.

For group activities and parties, permits are required from the City of Atlantic City.

Metal detectors are allowed on the beach at any time.
