It has been a very sad few days at the Jersey Shore. My thoughts are with Keith Pinto and his family. Keith was a 19-year-old Toms River native and lifeguard who was fatally struck by lightning on the beach in Berkeley Township. He was a special kid who was loved by many. My heart is with Keith's family and friends. Below is a picture of Keith, may he rest in peace!

More tragic news, this time in Monmouth County. A deceased human body was found less than a mile offshore in Sea Bright. The New Jersey State Police reported this breaking news on Sunday morning. The identification of the person is unknown and has not been released to the public. We won't know until the completion of the post-mortem examination.

The body was found floating face down by a passerby on a boat off the Sea Bright coast. The Sea Bright Fire and Rescue, members of the New Jersey State Police Marine Services Bureau, and the U.S. Coast Guard responded to the scene and transported the body to shore. The body is currently being examined at the Middlesex County Medicals office.

We will update this article and page as soon as we find out more about the story.

Positive News... Sea Bright On The List? Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
