Best known as “The Best Little Town in NJ”, Union Beach is a 1.9 sq mile town in the heart of the Raritan Bay. Nestled between Hazlet, Keyport & Keansburg, this once bungalow town got its start in 1676. Its close proximity to public Buses, NJ Transit Trains & Ferries make the short 45-60 minute trip to New York City the everyday commuter’s dream!
Devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, this close-knit family town has banded together to rebuild and make Union Beach even stronger than before. The one-time bungalow fishing town of the Raritan Bay and it’s resident “Beachers” has seen a vast development of new construction homes along with a revitalization of local businesses. But don’t let that fool you, if you look close enough you will still see “UB Strong” stickers proudly displayed by the families residing in the borough.
Amazing views of New York City & the Verrazano Bridge, access to the town’s own Public Beach, a famous Fishing Cove and popular hotspots such as Jakeabob’s Bay, every “Beacher” grew up knowing, are just some of the things that make this town the perfect place to live! Enjoy bike rides along the historical Henry Hudson Trail that stretches from Freehold to Atlantic Highlands, relaxing walks down the half-mile-long promenade overlooking Lower Manhattan along the beachfront, summer movies in the fields of Scholer Park, fun at the playground at Firemen’s Park located right on the water and much more.
You won’t want to miss out on your chance to be a part of “The Best Little Town in NJ”.
