I have been coming to LBI since 1973. It's a great place to vacation with the family for a week or two. Fantasy island amusement park and great beaches.

Been coming here before kids and grandkids . Feels like home and like the Jersey Shore should be for families. So much to do for free!

Having grown up on the beaches of Monmouth County, LBI was new to me until about 5 years ago, and Beach Haven had become my favorite beach town of all, from Sea Bright to Monterey.

The beach part of Long Beach Island is amazing. The beach is pristine, and feels completely separate from the main roads. The separation is absolutely necessary in this summer get-away, because the main drag is rather depressingly crowded and run-down. There are electrical wires draping...More

Go to the north end to see the lighthouse and do some fishing either on land or by boat, travel to the southern end to see the protected Federal Wildlife Refuge and see what the island used to look like. There are plenty of beaches...More

Salt air in the lungs and a trip over the causeway bridge and you have arrived on LBI. Sand, ocean, bay, and sun are the key ingredients for "the shore". So much to do and so little time. Come visit and enjoy.
