Any of the beaches from Sandy Hook south through Sea Girt are nice. What other criteria do you have? The most beautiful town is Spring Lake, the quaintest is Ocean Grove, the most clubs are in Asbury Park....each shore town has it's unique personality. Tell us a little more about what you are looking for....

SusieQQ poses an excellent question.

Sea Girt's beaches are very clean, the boradwalk is nice, but if you have kids, they may want more stimulation (also only one public restroom all the way down the North end of the beach).

Asbury's beaches are decent but there are still parts of the town that are a bit shady and not very family oriented.

Manasquan has decent beaches, but they have a tarred path for their boardwalk. Also get a bit noisy at night...caters to a younger crowd. Parking can be a headache.

Belmar has alittle playground on the beach and has plenty of bars/ places to eat...

I think the one beach town that offers something for everyone is Point Pleasant Beach---I know it's not in Monmouth County--- but has a bit of something for everyone and just over the river from Monmouth County.

Also, you say "for a week's vacation" are you looking for lodging too?

AmyEdws: Thank you for taking time to participate BUT: This thread was from 2012 and the OP was asking for recommendations in Monmouth County. Ocean City is a long way from Monmouth County.
