I am so looking forward to the 2021 summer season and enjoying some fun in the sun. From Atlantic City to Wildwood, South Jersey is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the entire country.

It's also never too early to purchase your beach tags for the 2021 beach season. Beach tags will be sold at window pick up locations, through the mail, online or through an app called VIPLY which will make your beach tag purchase contactless.  .

Beach tags are required on most South Jersey beaches between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Here's a rundown on beach tag prices and information. Check back for more updates as we get closer to another summer season in South Jersey.
