“Its a home away from home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

The entire island is absolutely amazing. from Barnegat Light all the way to Holgate. There are literally HUNDRED'S of places to eat, visit & hang out. You can make sand castles, play on the sand jetty's or float around in a pool, there are lots of Hotels with Pools! I was sad to see the damage Hurricane Sandy unleashed onto LBI...but the community is amazing and so tight knit. LBI will be back, better and stronger than ever. GO...STAY AND PLAY...on LBI. you will never regret it.

“LBI coming back strong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This is the place I spent many happy childhood summers so expect this review to be biased. LBI is a great place for the beach. It is a bit more natural and less commercial than other "Jersey shore" points. All the beaches a kept very clean and there is plenty to do when you are not on the beach with shops, restaurants, and a small amusement park. LBI was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy but is coming beck strong. I wouldn't recommend visiting it in the next few months unless you are coming to volunteer. They are busy cleaning up and it is off season anyway. I have been down a number of times to help clean out my families home on the southern end and it is not a pretty site.Despite that hotels and a few restaurants have begun to reopen. Right now the northern end of the island looks a bit better than the southern end and Surf City looks almost unaffected. I am sure by the summer LBI will be back and ready for visitors.

“great place to vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

most people were fantastic and friendly. There is plenty to do and the ocean and bay are only a half mile apart.

“BEST BEACH in NJ!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

If you want to see the Atlantic at its finest~skip "the shore" spots and check-out LBI, right outside of Surf City, NJ. Some of the best waves and cleanest area in the state.

“A very nice family place”

Nice beach for the family. Casual beach attire. And a nice easy ride from NYC and also Atlantic City. I go every year to visit with friends and it is a very relaxing trip.
