Lavallette New Jersey raises the cost of beach beacons in 2023

I understand supply chain issues may be driving up the cost of chicken, but it’s getting a little out of control!

If you’re planning on spending some time at the beach next summer, you’re going to have to dig a little deeper into your pocket.

Last week, I told you about this popular Atlantic County beach town about to raise the prices of its beach tags, and we’ll see that happen in Ocean County as well.

Now I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t really mind paying to use the beach.

I know I’m crazy but I’ll elaborate.

When I first moved to Seaside Heights as a full-time resident earlier this year, I remember meeting a guy who was from North Carolina.

We were both walking towards the boardwalk, I was going for a beer and he was getting ready to go to the beach.

When we approached the boards he saw all the places selling beach tags and was absolutely bowled over when he found out he had to pay to use the beach.

Apparently, where he was from in Carolina, the beaches are free, and you can just walk around and relax for the day.

I’ve been to a few beaches in Carolina, they weren’t bad at all, but they don’t compare to the Jersey Shore in my opinion.

Like I said, I don’t mind paying to use the beaches as that money is usually pushed back into town.

Whether it’s for maintenance, salaries for lifeguards, or general improvements, the money from our beach beacons generally helps our beach towns.

That being said, times are tough for everyone, and paying extra for labels, even if it’s only five or ten bucks, can be a big hassle.

So which Ocean County beach town is increasing the cost of beach beacons in 2023?

I visit this town frequently, it has one of my favorite bars on the island and one of my favorite ice cream parlours, and my family stays there every year for vacation.

According to Shorebeat Lavallette Beach increase its prices;

For the 2023 season, holiday badges will be $55, pre-season badges will be $60, and regular-priced badges will be $65. Daily badges will increase by $1, at a cost of $13.

So if you wanted to take a family of four to the beach for the day in season, it would cost you $52, and for four seasonal badges, it would be $260!
