Driving on the beach

FYI- AIR DOWN TO ROUGHLY 17psi

Each municipality sells their own BEACH BUGGY PASS. Make sure you obtain passes for whatever beaches you wish to drive on.

Each year there are many stuck vehicles on the beach. It can be costly to be towed if you can't dig yourself out. NJ Beach Buggy Association has a driving clinic every year. Visit their site for additional information.



There is an air hose you may  use at our shop. It is located in the parking lot edge farthest from the corner. It is free. All we ask is when you are done to hang up the hose & not leave it on the ground.
