Beach Walks

Did you ever dare to walk the beaches at the Jersey Shore in winter?  If you haven’t, it’s a must do. The beaches at the Jersey shore are the best beaches around and they offer a lot even in the winter.  Cold sand, windy breeze, seashells, sea glass, kites, a picnic breakfast/lunch/dinner, sunrise, or the tranquillity of a quiet beach are just a few of the amazing things the winter beaches have to offer.
