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!

Long Beach Island is the quintessential Jersey Shore. The beaches are pristine; they are maintained daily. The locals are up-scale. There are numerous excellent restaurants, motels, shoppes . . . to choose from. It's a great vacation get-away. Its remote location adds to its attraction.

The length of the beaches truly define the island. Nice see different area of the beach and the different communities on the island. End of August was a great time to visit.

I have been to Long Beach Island several times. Mr. Kelly is great, owner of Coral Seas. This Motel is within walking distance of entertainment for the family, restaurants and shops. There is not a lot of commercialism on the Island which makes it great. Climbing the Barnegat Lighthouse is great; only 217 steps. Miniature golf on almost every corner.... More

I am a local, so I may be ...... Lovely towns and beaches. Wish there was a boardwalk with places to eat and drink overlooking the water. Wish there were more boating and dining spots.
