The beach is great because it is basically flat (good for the little ones), but if you go off shore a little bit, there can be 3 to 4 foot swells. Kids surf, boogie board and skim board in the surf. There is a fee for the beach and it is strongly enforced. It's $7 per adult for a day... More

A good ocean beach. If you aren't staying at one of the house at the beach there is a block or so walk to get there. You may want to load up a wagon or one of those beach carts. It's clean and there are lifeguards until 5pm. The ice cream truck comes by periodically and rings a bell so... More

Just passed through so we were only there for about an hour. The beach was awesome, I loved it. Not too many hotels to stay at but there are several beach houses.

This is a great wide sand beach with easy access. The only thing that could improve it would be having restrooms nearby. That being said, the wide beach makes it less crowded & great for allowing the family to sprawl out the blankets, umbrellas, etc. Great clean, scenic beach!

This was a very beautiful beach! It was extremely clean and you could see kids playing everywhere. I am looking forward to going back later in the year when it gets warmer to really enjoy the water.

This is the first beach travelers hit when they come to LBI and it is the best. Surfers can hit the waves outside of swimming zones and the people are very friendly.
