The weather hasn't been very cooperative lately, but hopefully we'll get a few nice weekend beach days this summer.

There are so many options for spending your time on the sand...so which is the best?

I used to always go to the south end of Long Branch...always nice and quiet, but not a whole lot to offer in terms of food and facilities...then of course there's my old standby, Belmar, which has a ton of boardwalk offerings, but is always super crowded...

Pt. Beach kind of bring the same pros and cons..plus, can we talk about how pricey the parking is!?

Now that so many beaches are back open, I'm dying to go! But I can't decide which one! Keep in mind I have no kids, and I generally just go to hang out in the sun and relax.

From Sandy Hook to Seven Presidents to Seaside, Ship Bottom, and beyond...there are 60-some miles of beaches at our disposal...so which is the best, and where should I go?

Which beach do you go to, and why is it your favorite? Tell us in the comment section below!
