Seven Mile Beach
Seven Mile Beach covers the towns of Avalon and Stone Harbor. These stunning beaches are perfect for any New Jersey Vacation. You are welcome to participate in a wide range of watersports including Kayaking, paddleboarding, and surfing in designated areas. The protected areas of the beach are the only areas where people are allowed to bathe and swim in the water as these areas are monitored by lifeguards.
Any of these beaches is guaranteed to give you fun beach vacation. However, in order to use the beach, you much purchase a beach tag for everyone in your party that is 12 years old and older. You can purchase these tags at the start of your vacation at one of the beach's booths or at a tag inspector on the beach. You much have a tag for the Avalon Beaches and a separate tag for the Stone Harbor beaches if you plan on exploring both beaches.
