The flag is green so it's safe to swim. These lifeguards are keeping a watchful eye on the swimmers at Avon-by-the-Sea Washington Avenue beach. This Jersey beach is very popular with families because at low tide a cove forms. It is formed by the L-shaped jetty on the north side of the Shark River Inlet. The kids just love swimming in the low level pool and looking for small fish.
This is a great place to spend the day with family and friends.
There are rest room facilities.
A short stroll up the boardwalk there are two great restaurants for lunch and a snack bar.
Next door to the snack bar is a shop with all sorts of beach goods and clothing.
Avon has several really lovely B&B's.
If traveling to Avon try to book by March for the Summer season.
Keep this in mind for the Summer of 2013!
