According to the United States Census Bureau, the Borough has a total area of 1.318 square miles. Deal borders the Atlantic for its entire approximately one-mile eastern boundary. The landscape of the beaches located at the east end of the five streets named in Ordinance #1143 (Monmouth Terrace, Monmouth Drive, Hathaway, Sydney and Neptune Ave.) make them ideal locations for surfing, fishing, sun bathing and engaging in various other activities. These activities predominately occur between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm.

BOROUGH OF DEAL SEEKS TO RESTRICT ACCESS – AGAIN!
DEAL, NJ: 4/4/17
The Borough of Deal is introducing Ordinance #1143 “Permit Parking” on Monmouth Terrace, Monmouth Drive, Hathaway, Sydney and Neptune Ave.This is another attempt to keep people away from the newly replenished beaches, paid for with your tax money.
A bill in the NJ Senate would finally codify certain aspects of public access to NJ’s waterways. The last two Governor’s have created rules for this type of access that have been thrown out in court. We have said all along that the Legislature, the lawmakers could take on this issue and settle it. This is a good first step.
