Becoming the classiest summer place in NJ. 18 miles of beautiful white sand ocean beaches. Several quiet bay beaches too. Lots of restaurants and shopping. Laid back. Easy to get around. Any water activity you can imagine is available. Huge array of accommodations. Relaxing, unpretentious.

We had a wonderful time on LBI! We will be coming back time and time again I am sure. Lots to do, clean beaches, no commercial restaurants or stores. It is such a cute place, and the people are wonderful!

Beautiful beaches with warm friendly locals looking to help you have a good time. The ocean is clean with guarded beaches and a nice mix of family visitors.
