This little beach shack saved me.. After being dx with leukemia, I went down& smelled the ocean, listening to the waves. If... More

I know the Ship Bottom area bc my friend has a place there. I was so happy and impressed with how it was restored after Sandy. I used to live in NJ at the shore in Monmouth County. I have never seen seen LBI look so beautiful as it did last summer. It is just gorgeous!.

I took a trip with my son, a long anticipated trip back to New Jersey. Rented a beachfront condo off season for two weeks. The island beach beautiful and has stayed that way for the fifty some years that I have gone there. No matter the amount of time in between trips back. I am originally from Trenton. I rented...

Went off season, but still very beautiful and actually had a couple warm days at the end of October beginning of November. I expect it is a very busy area in the summer, but loved the quiet serene pace of off season. Still several restaurants open in the off season, the Chicken or the Egg and a few others.

Explore in the off season- you'll enjoy it more. Even in October on a Sunday there are things to do. Don't forget barnegat light house- a must see!

Just visited LBI last Thursday before the weather changed along with the season. It was the most beautiful day of the summer I/we had. That day was shared with my daughter and I, and we just basked in the ocean and under the sun just one last time. It was Awesome! Thank God for special moments like these.

We visited LBI (again) in August 2014, and found it to be better than ever. We walk every morning and beach it most afternoons. There's good shopping up and down the island, great fish places, fudge, and a small amusement park. No boardwalk, nothing too built up, but enough to keep you busy, if you choose. The beaches are lovely... More

You can't bring food or alcohol to the beach which is one block from the main Long Beach Ave with restaurants and hotels. That's why this beach is clean! The waves are strong enough for surfers and swimmers to enjoy. Great place to visit in the summer.

Spent a week at a house on the Bay side. Weather was beautiful, very good bike trails to ride for distance. Enjoyed the beach. Very nice family atmosphere.
