No matter when you’re heading to your favorite shore spot (and stopping to eat along the way), you can maximize your relaxation time by being pampered at the spa. Below, you’ll find nine Jersey Shore resorts and day spas that will have you feeling totally relaxed and rejuvenated — without ever needing to step out of the beach beacons.

Salt Spa at The Reeds

Reeds at Shelter Haven, Stone Harbor

The Reeds at Shelter Haven in Stone Harbor is the crème de la crème of shore getaways. Each room feels like a mini oasis, you can kayak or paddleboard directly from the resort’s dock, and don’t even tell us about the margins of the Buckets outdoor restaurant overlooking the bay. It’s no wonder Oprah stays here whenever she’s in town. Its spa, Salt Spa at The Reeds, will make it even more difficult to leave. While you can of course opt for a massage, facial, manicure/pedicure, cut and color, tanning session or flotation therapy, you’d be remiss if you didn’t try a mud treatment. or a scrub in the Turkish bath – the only one of its kind on the shore.
