White Sands Beach in South Seaside Park will be open for visitors on June 15, when lifeguards will be on duty, Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. said.
"Our beaches will be ready," he said.
Pre-season beach badges will go on sale from May 28 to June 14 at the Berkeley Township Recreation Center at 630 Route 9 South in Bayville. The pre-season rate is $30, the same as last year. Starting June 15, post-season badges can be purchased at the 23rd Avenue lifeguard stand for $35.
Lifeguards will remain on duty through Labor Day, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Amato said.
This out-of-the way beach is actually in Berkeley Township, right near the entrance to Island Beach State Park. It runs from 20th Avenue to 23rd Avenue.
Admission for children under 12 is free. New Jersey residents who are 62 and over receive free badges after proof of age and residency are furnished.
