Dunes, Beach Grass

During the Winter and Spring of 2004, the City of Ventnor, along with the United States Army Corp of Engineers, and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection entered into an agreement to provide coastal storm damage reduction and shoreline protection along the beach. As a result of this action, the beach was widened, and a sand dune of beach grass was constructed along the entire Ventnor City beach. The interference or alteration, destruction, or removal of these sand dunes and vegetation along the beachfront are protected under Federal Law. Violators are punishable by fine or imprisonment.

Dogs on the Beach

Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach during the months of May 15 through September 30th. During the times of October 1st through May 15th, dogs may be walked on a leash only on the areas of beach washed by the high tideline.
