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.

My wife Donna and I went to LBI for a short vacation August 2014. As a special treat for her (and me!), I arranged for a masseuse and masseur to come to our room at our motel/inn and give us massages. It was heaven -- my first massage. Donna, a veteran of massages, put this one at the top of... More

LBI is great, not overcrowded, beautyful beaches - but... the regulations at beach are worse than in prison. Swimming? Only allowed at small overcrowed places - the rest of the beahc is empty. The life guards are whistling all the times, even when your kids step into the water at the beginning and thats not in the "allowed area". Playing... More

Nice beaches but the beaches are private so you have to pay daily or weekly depending on your stay. Great children's activities. Like the amusement park and pirate ship.

I have been vacationing on Long Beach Island since 1970, ever since my 3 girlfriends and I were looking for a beautiful beach, within close proximity to the Bronx, that was also affordable. It did not disappoint and continues to provide all the wonderful things we look for in a relaxing vacation. Over the past 44 years we have seen... More
