Long Beach Island is about 20 miles long with many different communities strung along the length. In the summer, i don't think too many towns that also have shopping, and great restaurants will qualify as not crowded. That said, north on LBI are primarily residential communities such as North Beach, Love Ladies or Harvey Cedars, all very quiet, but less options on accomodations or shopping. I would recommend you look into the historic district of Beach Haven and look into an Inn or B&B. You can walk or bike to most restaurants or shops, there is live professional theater at the Surflight. You may need reservations for dining, or plan for a wait, but it is the busy season. see www.thegableslbi.com for a beautiful inn or romantic dinner site. Post again with any questions.

Both are crowded in the summer, but I think LBI better fits what you are looking for. Have fun!
