I'm a Canadian who's been vacationing on Long Beach Island for over 40 years since childhood, with perhaps 16 or so stays through the years. It is a place now running through my blood. Firstly, LBI is so much different than what is just north and south of it. Do not confuse this section of NJ with the carnival atmospheres... More

Beautiful beaches. A community set back in time. Nothing better than the Jersey Shore. Very family oriented, not the loud bar hopping places you see on TV in regard to the Jersey Shore. Peaceful, tranquil, beautiful.

Many moons ago I built a house on LBI. It's was freezing cold, and we suffered all the way through the project. When the house was completed, all I remember enjoying was the views from the rooftop hot tub and the spiral stair going up to the roof. Amazing!!!!

We purchased a second home in 1990. BH is noted for its beaches and a great place for families from April thru Oct.

Long Beach island has a lot to offer. The beaches are world class. In my opinion the surf is higher and better than other shore points in the area. The island has many attractions . There are many places to dine, and there are nice shops as well. This appears to be very family oriented , although it is a... More

From Barnegat Light all the way down to Holgate...so much to do! Tour the lighthouse, enjoy either the ocean or bayside, fun with the kids/grandchild at Fantasty Island to play games and... More

Great place for the family to relax and enjoy a day shopping or at the beach. Here you can find great food, ice cream, sea food, ect. Although the beach is not free to get in but its worth it considering how clean it is.

LBI is truly the nicest of all NJ beaches. Pre/Post Thanksgiving is perfect time of year to enjoy both Bayside and Oceanside! The best trip to "The Cape" is LBI. Go solo or bring the whole crew!
