We visited Long Beach Island every summer when we lived in a northern state. Recently visited the island after many years and found it to be just as beautiful and friendly as years ago. We love the natural beaches and the quaint towns. Great beach for both families and couples. Can't wait to visit again and hope it can be... More

The island is just relaxed and very family-oriented. People were riding bikes everywhere. Parking is good at the restaurants and shops. The beaches were fun, and we enjoyed boogie-boarding the waves. There is none of the 20-something crowd on the beach. It's really just a great place for families to go and enjoy Jersey's beaches.

If you are looking for a family location on the shore where it's quiet after 9 pm and clean with lots of family oriented things to do visit Long Beach Island. If rain is planned you'll have to make sure you are either staying on the Island or get off before the weather arrives.

Surf City, LBI is the best way to start off my family's summer vacation! We spend our days at the beach or the bay and then spend most nights in our rented home for a quiet dinner and games. Great to catch the sunset by the bay. Stop by "Sea Moon" on 15th Street to get hermit crabs for the... More

This island has everything a traveler could want. House rentals, hotels and motels. There is both scenes and solitude, depending where one goes. Great selection of restaurants at all price ranges. Quiet beaches or crowded beaches - your choice Great ice cream places. Good for families or singles or couples. Beach Haven has nice shopping, a water park and mini=golf... More

This Jersey Shore island is the place to be. It is a great place for families to enjoy a summer vacation. There is plenty to do with kids and plenty of shopping for mom. Highly recommend vacationing here

Just an idyllic spot with a wide wonderful beach...shallow a-ways out...warm water...waves that fun to jump in. If you don't mind a substantial cost, you can rent a huge house right on the beach.

Grew up in Surf City and have seen the island change somewhat. It is still the best for family vacations on the Jersey coast. 18 miles of clean beaches, affordable accommodations and the full gamut of places to eat.
