Manasquan has one mile of sandy beaches located between the Manasquan inlet to the south and Sea Girt to the North. Each lifeguard stand uses a flag system designating swimming, and surf boarding areas. In addition there is a fishing area along the Inlet walkway. The blacktop walk way spans 8/10’s of a mile.
Manasquan has the only beach dedicated to the handicapped in the Jersey Shore area. Elks Beach provides handicapped parking and a wooden boardwalk to a platform on the beach. In addition, there are several large handicapped chairs available for the use of the beach and the water’s edge.
