Just in time for Memorial Day Jersey’s least crowded beaches

TOP 5 quietest beaches on the Jersey coast

The unofficial start of summer 2024 is almost here and we want to share with you the TOP 5 “quietest” beaches here in New Jersey. These are beaches where, we hope, you can beat the Memorial Day crowds and take a quiet trip to the beach. I think we have some of the best beaches in America right here on 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 shop on the beach in Ship Bottom, Long Beach Island. Ship Bottom wasn’t on my list of “quietest” beaches, but it is our favorite. Check out my TOP 5 “Quietest” Beaches and one of these might be a perfect place to visit this holiday weekend. Let’s think of ‘tranquility’, ‘serenity’ and ‘peace’.

Sunset beach

This quiet little beach is located at the foot of Jersey. Sunset Beach is located at the end of Cape May in the southernmost part of the Garden State. There are a few small shops and a restaurant on the beach.


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


I remember growing up and my cousins ​​always rented a house on the beach in Lavallette and they loved it there because it was just a nice quiet beach. Lavallette also has cool towns surrounding it with nightlife, additional restaurants and fairground attractions.


Voted one of the best beaches in America, Avalon is a nice beach to get away from the crowds this Memorial Day weekend.

Spring lake

This gem in Monmouth County is a great place to visit and perhaps the perfect spot for Memorial Day Weekend in New Jersey.
