SEA BRIGHT - Beach badges may be required this summer for a popular Monmouth County beach that used to be free.

Sea Bright Borough officials want to charge $8 per day to get onto Anchorage Beach, a popular surfing spot just north of the Sea Bright-Rumson Bridge.

The fee would be for weekends only and the plan would require two lifeguards for the beach.

The borough council still needs to approve the plan.
