Beach Safety and Ocean Knowledge

We want all patrons to come to our beaches in Upper Township to enjoy the fun and relaxation that Strathmere and Beesley’s Point can offer.  It is also important to know the dangers that can arise when being at the beach especially when the ocean may be rough or the weather is hot and humid.  Please take the time to be sure you are educated on these dangers. This way you can have fun at the beach and we can enjoy protecting you while you are there!
