No matter what type of activity you enjoy – indoor or outdoor – you’re sure to find something that suits you in Brick Township.

There are 53 miles of waterfront property, more than any other township in the state, and our waterways are full of activities including boating, fishing, clamming and crabbing. Along these shores, it’s not unusual to see boats tied to one another for socializing or a lone kayak gliding quietly through the water. You will spot traditional wooden boats and sailboats in addition to state-of-the-art cruisers.

Brick’s idyllic location alone would be enough to make it a wonderful tourist destination, but the number and variety of options and activities here make it a truly special place.
