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.

I love this beach. No boardwalk but plenty of sand and waves. Just a relaxing place to be. Great place to take a long walk.

I like that the beach is 1 block away and the bay is only 2 blocks away. Everything within in walking distance.

A nice long walk on the beach here is good for the soul, make sure you go on a sunny day without much wind or it will become a real challenge.

Long Beach Island- Ship Bottom is a great place to vacation. Bagel Eddie has great breakfast items and there is always a line going out the front door. The island in whole has a lot of entertainment to offer for all ages. If you go, you won't be disappointed.

This beach is unreal ! Beautiful sand, a lot of people but not too crowdy since the beach is so big. However, we could not find a washroom or shower on the beach which is sad for this quality of beach. The ask us to pay to get entrance to the beach but half the service. I guess they have... More

Love the beach in Ship Bottom, LBI. It is a large beach that is clean and people don't have to sit on top of each other.

The beach was only a block away and it was very clean and not overly crowded. They have plenty of lifeguards on duty.
