About the Park
North Beach is a great family location with an Atlantic ocean-front setting - its sandy beach is ideal for swimming and picnicking. Amenities at the beach include a bathhouse, which is open year-round. Metered parking is available. Pay stations that are located at State Beaches accept cash and coins as well as credit and debit cards. There are pay meters along a small part of North Beach that accepts coins only.
