How To Enjoy Ocean Grove's Beaches... In Winter!

In summer, it can be difficult to find a place to lay your towel on Ocean Grove's beaches.  Given the small surf-town's population swells from 16,000 to 40,000+ during the warmer months, it's not hard to understand why.

But what about in Winter - when our beaches look like this?  Still. Beautiful. Alone.

Grab your beanie, put on a jacket - and leave your shoes at home.  Because Ocean Grove's beaches can still be enjoyed... in Winter!  Here's how.


Dip your toes in the ocean...

It doesn't matter if the sun isn't shining, the ocean makes us better people. I believe this whole heartedly.  So kick your shoes off and get them wet. There's nothing like sand between your toes and fresh water on your feet.

Go for long walks...

There's something about the salt air and grey skies.  It clears you head and gives you perspective.

Rug up - and get going on a long beachy walk.

Stretch and relax at a beach yoga session...

Under grey and cloudy skies, you will often see a beach yoga lesson occuring along the stretched of beaches at Ocean Grove.  They say summer bodies are made in winter - so get out there - try a beach yoga session! Namastay!
