Along the banks of the Manasquan River, you’ll find the charming borough of Brielle. Bordered by Manasquan and Point Pleasant Beach, the town is known as a haven for boaters. It’s easy to see why considering that the town borders on four miles of waterfront along the Manasquan River, Glimmerglass, and Debbie’s Creek – all saltwater and tidal bodies of water. Besides all the gorgeous water views, the downtown area also offers plenty of shopping, dining, and unique spots.
Brielle has a population of around 4,800 people and is surrounded by several parks and marinas. Its recreation departments provide many different sporting activities as well as programs and classes for all ages. The Manasquan River Golf Club, located in Brielle, has a sprawling 140-acre course with 18 holes. Furthermore, the nearby Manasquan Yacht Club also offers many different perks for its members.
