Beside the ocean on Bradley Beach

Bradley Beach vacation rentals are your ticket to one of New Jersey's most handsome stretches of shoreline. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, the town is fringed by long arcs of golden sand and wavy dunes. Families will love dining in the hearty seafood shacks and shrimp buffets after long, lazy days of beachcombing. Others will wash down the longboards for a bout of roaring surf on the swells, or head out over the rollers to see if they can spot humpback whales along the NJ coast.

Things to do

Life on Main Street in Bradley Beach

If you really want to feel the local vibes of this salt-washed New Jersey town, be sure to search for Bradley Beach vacation rentals that dot the edge of Main Street. This charming strip of bars and boutiques has all-American diners, coffee shops, and hearty East Coast seafood joints aplenty _ it's a great place to while away your evenings. For the best sands, you'll only need to hop across town to the coast, where you'll discover the trio of Bradley Beach, Ocean Grove Beach, and the Avon-by-the-Sea Public Beach ready and waiting.

Activities

Enjoying the Garden State's shores in Bradley Beach

A vacation on Bradley Beach is a typically chilled out affair. Mornings begin with beautiful sunrise shows over the boardwalk and promenade walks that fringe the sands _ keep your eyes peeled for whale pods splashing out at sea. Then, it's onto the beach itself for picnics and strolling, or perhaps a surf lesson with local wave-riding maestros. The hearty NJ taverns and pubs of the town center are never too far away either, offering a chance to dig into a smorgasbord of local seafood treats.

Weather

Bradley Beach is best when it's warm

Bradley Beach goes from empty to full when the sun hits North America. Folk flock from all over the Garden State and New York City to enjoy the cooling wash of the Atlantic Ocean, or to try their surfing skills on the swells of the NJ coast. Be sure to search for your Bradley Beach vacation rentals between the months of June and August if you're after dry days, oodles of sun, and plenty of rays for your trip.

Natural features

Buffeted by the Atlantic in Bradley Beach

Bradley Beach is the stepping stone between the forested inland of New Jersey and the great Atlantic Blue. It's not got any designated state parks or reserves, but does come fringed with long runs of powdery, yellow sand, sloping softly down into the swells where surfers crash over the whitecaps and loungers languish in the shallows. You'll have the chance to see plenty of marine wildlife _ whales, dolphins, seals _ from the edge of the headlands here, not to mention uber-romantic sunrise shows in the early morning hours.
