LBI is a pleasant change from the over-developed beach areas on the Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland shores. Lots of restaurants (tho most were still closed for the winter season), plenty of beautiful beach to choose from, small amusement area with rides that is not on the beach itself, and the beach area on the south end of the island at...

A great place to vacation with family and friends. Loved it as there is so much to do for all. From the beaches, shopping, miniature golf, water park, fishing, boating and night life.

In response to some of the criticisms of LBI... we have been coming here for 50 years and have owned a home for 17 years. Some are upset that you can't just swim anywhere... that's for your safety. Also to those not happy that rest rooms and food isn't everywhere. Go to Atlantic City or Wildwood if you want that.... More

This Island is a clean family friendly vacation spot. There are may great restaurants and family activities to do. The beaches are spotless, probably because you have to pay to play.

From the quiet solitude of the north end of the Island to the attractions of the south end, Long Beach Island has it all. A free shuttle is available for anyone coming to LBI. Situated between the bay and the Ocean with only one bridge in once you're here you won't want to leave and you won't have to.

Over the years we have stayed at various locations on Long Beach Island during the summer months. Long Beach Island is made up of many small towns so this review applies to all of the island regardless of which town you stay in. There are numerous summer weekly rentals on the island, but if you do not know someone you... More
