DEAL—This morning Deal officials announced an expansion of its public beach access program at Conover Beach to include the newly replenished beach at Monmouth Terrace. Following the completion of the beach replenishment project last year and in response to the unprecedented demand for public beach access at its Monmouth Terrace beach, Deal has added lifeguard service at the Monmouth Terrace beach accompanied by beach entrance fees.
Press Release Borough of Deal May 24, 2017
“After the beaches were replenished in 2016, we experienced a large influx of visitors to access the Monmouth Terrace beach. In order to enhance the experience and safety for the beach goers and address beach maintenance, we have implemented beach access fees consistent with our own Conover Beach as well as neighboring communities to offset the added cost of lifeguards and extra beach cleaning services. Additionally, Deal beach passes will now allow visitors the ability to ‘flex’ between beach locations within the Borough” said Mayor Sam Cohen.
The beach access fee will be the same as past seasons and will now allow for visitors to access both the Conover Beach and the Monmouth Terrace Beach for $8 per weekday, $10 on weekends and holidays, and $150 for seasonal passes. The beach access fee will be effective from Memorial Day through Labor Day, 10 am to 6 pm.
