Beach Tags 2017
To partially offset the cost of maintaining and protecting its beaches for your enjoyment, Avalon and Stone Harbor requires that beach tags be worn by all using the beach, 12 years or older, 10 AM to 5 PM, starting the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend through September 4, 2017.
Pre-season beach tags may be purchased weekend beginning April 2, 2016, at the Avalon Beach Tag Booth at Community Hall. Other beach tags may be purchased daily April 23 through September 1 at the booth on or beginning the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend from Beach Tag Inspectors on the Beach.

- Season Tag: $28.00 (effective June 1)
- Weekly Tag: $12.00 (Saturday through Saturday)
- Daily Tag: $ 6.00
Beach tags are reciprocal between Avalon and Stone Harbor.
Seasonal beach tags can also be ordered through the mail each Spring. Please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope, along with a check to: Avalon Tax Office/Beach Tags, 3100 Dune Drive, Avalon, NJ 08202. Make your check payable to: Borough of Avalon. Please indicate how many seasonal beach tags you are ordering at the $22 pre-season price. You will be mailed a receipt from the tax office. During your next visit to Avalon, redeem your receipt for the number of beach tags that you ordered. Actual beach tags are not sent through the mail. Weekly and daily tags cannot be ordered through the mail.
Free Veterans Beach Tags/Active Military
The Avalon Borough Council approved a new ordinance that results in free beach tags being offered to all veterans of the United States Military. This ordinance will be in effect for the 2014 beach season. The ordinance was passed during a 5–0 vote at the Avalon Borough Council meeting on February 26th, 2014.
The new law allows beach communities in New Jersey to offer reduced price or free beach tags to any individual who has served in any of the Armed Forces of the United States who were discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable and who either have served at least 90 days in active duty or have been discharged or released from active duty by reason of a service-incurred injury or disability.
Avalon will make the free beach tags available at the Avalon Beach Tag Booth located next to Avalon Community Hall at 30th Street and the beach. Veterans will simply need to show appropriate documentation to receive their free beach tag for the 2014 beach season in Avalon. Appropriate documentation includes: DD-214, or any of the following:
- Cape May County Veterans card, issued by the county
- American Legion card
- VFW card
- Vietnam Veterans of America card
- Disabled Veterans of America card
- Marine Corps League card
Avalon continues its practice of offering free beach tags to active members of the United States Armed Forces and their immediate family members.
