I have spent a vacation week on Long Beach Island for 30+ years. The white sandy uncrowded beaches are some of the best I have ever seen in the USA. Long Beach Island has a quiet Bay side and a more surf worthy Ocean side. This is a great place for family fun with an amusement park, many ice cream... More

It's a barrier island that has been drawing tourist "shoobies" for swimming, boating, fishing and just relaxing for a week or a summer. There is plenty to do or nothing to do depending on what you feel like. Many restaurants a few attractions and plenty of shopping. Relax in the sun, play in the sun or just do touristy things...

LBI is my favorite vacation spot! A few of the many great things to do are swimming, biking, mini-golfing, eating, and more! My favorite hotel/motel is Engleside Inn and Restaurant. Enjoy your time at this wonderful heaven.

This was my first visit to this section of the New Jersey coast - a great time! A little more laid back than some other shore towns, but still plenty to see & do! Especially enjoyed visiting the Barnegat Lighthouse ..and of course the beaches. Look forward to returning!

My wife and I had dinner there on Monday June 22. We both ordered the Flounder Maryland. It was much too over cooked. The crab imperial was almost charred. We ate there several years ago enjoyed their fresh fish. Not so now.We will never return.

The beach was pretty dirty but the overall experience was nice. We love the beach and to travel so while we were in New York we decided to stop here and visit. We are glad we did. Do not compare it to a Florida beach but nice getaway from the big city.

Love the Jersey Shore! I grew up going to Beach Haven as a kid, and for the last 15 years or so my father has lived in Barnegat Light. LBI is one of the nicest beaches on the Jersey Shore, and Beach Haven is a fun area. Very family friendly with Bay Village which has shops and restaurants (go to... More

I been here several times and it always beautiful. I can just relax enjoy the sunshine and go swimming. The beach is clean all the time. Afterward I relax at one of the many restaurants in the area. If relaxing is your favorite thing this is the best place.
