The unofficial start to the summer of 2023 is almost here and we want to share with you the TOP 5 "quietest" beaches here in New Jersey. These are beaches where you can beat the Memorial Day crowds, we hope, and have a quiet trip to the beach. I think we have some of the best beaches in America, right here at the Jersey Shore. Our beaches have the best sand and the Atlantic Ocean is a great body of water to enjoy.

To be completely transparent we always set up on the beach in Ship Bottom, Long Beach Island. Ship Bottom did not make my list of "quietest" beaches, but it's our favorite. Check out my TOP 5 "quietest" beaches and one of these may be a perfect spot for you to visit this holiday weekend. Let's think of "tranquility", "serenity", and "peace".

HOLGATE

Holgate is part of Long Beach Township and is the southernmost beach on Long Beach Island. Holgate is quiet and remote and a great place to beat the big crowds at other beaches on LBI like Surf City, Ship Bottom, and Beach Haven.

Lavallette

I remember growing up and my cousins would always rent a house on the beach in Lavallette and they loved it there because it was just a nice quiet beach. Lavallette has cool towns around it too for nightlife, additional restaurants, and amusement rides.
