Why Beach tags?
Beach tags are required in most municipalities along the New Jersey coastline.
They are a user fee to help offset the local municipalities cost of maintaining
their beaches and providing lifeguards and other services such as trash removal,
beach cleaning and the purchase of needed equipment and police protection.
The cost of these items and all of the other beach benefits are supported by
this user fee known as the beach tag. The beach fee program was approved by the
residents of Ocean City in 1976 and continued since that time to help offset all
of the costs associated with the beach.
