About Long Beach Island

Every year, visitors come here from all over the metropolitan areas of New York and Philadelphia for an easy getaway, a romantic weekend, or a laid-back family vacation. Even if you're traveling from far away, Long Beach Island has the attractions and activities to make the journey worthwhile. Book a vacation rental just a few steps away from the beach and let the vacation adventures begin.

While you are here, head for the beach to go swimming, snorkeling, or sailing. Then after the sun goes down, enjoy the energetic nightlife, and seafood restaurants along the shore or retreat to your vacation rental and host a barbeque on your rental's deck for your family and friends.

Here are a few additional suggestions:

  • Rent a bicycle: Pack a picnic lunch and rent a bicycle or go hiking along the sandy coastal trails of New Jersey's protected state parks.
  • Play golf: Tee off on one of the popular champion caliber golf courses of Long Beach Island, then spend the afternoon relaxing in a luxury spa.
  • Go diving and snorkeling: Take a boat away from the harbor and into the deep blue waters offshore where you can swim amid a variety of colorful fish and sea stars.
  • Go deep sea fishing: Take a charter trip with rented equipment and an experienced guide and bring home delicious grouper, tarpaulin, or billfish.
  • Take a balloon ride: There's nothing more romantic than a colorful balloon ride along the coast at sunrise, followed by a champagne brunch.
