Been going to LBI for a very long time. There are beautiful sights & beaches. Both bay & ocean sides are lovely. It's full of charm. No sky high condos like other beach areas on East coast. It's a cozy 18 miles of smiles!

LBI is a great island. It's about 20 miles long end to end with many different types of communities along the way. It's narrow enough that for most of its length you can see the bay on one side and the ocean on the other. Lots of building and I assume re-building going on since Hurricane Sandy had done damage....

We have been visiting Beach Haven for years. Brought our young family and now we go as an older couple. Lots to do for everyone.

Our family has been coming here for five years & this was my wife's vacation destination growing up as a kid. This is a true family paradise for fun & relaxation. (Not for trendsetters or thrill seekers.) There are some motels, but historically most rent beach houses on a weekly-basis. No boardwalk, but this is one of the reasons that... More

Enjoyed watching the surfers at the end of LBI on such a beautiful sunny day. However, I didn't care for the biting greenheads.

This beach is not public. No homeless, clean, bodysurfing, helicopter shark patrols, seaweed FREE beach, perfect sand to walk on. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. Reason this beach is so perfect is because it is not PUBLIC OR FREE. Must have access in your own way. Can pay 25 dollars a day for a pass. LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!

LBI is the epitome of summer fun. I have been coming to beautiful LBI for a few years now and never have been disappointed. The beaches are amazing. People are very friendly. Great restaurants. It's the kind of place where you park your car and don't get in again until it's time to go back home. Anything you want is... More

This year (May 2016) was my first time in LBI, we loved it. The restaurants are great, the beaches IMO are the best down the shore, we rented houses for a week in May, June, July and we are getting ready to spend another week in Harvey Cedar, our favorite beach in LBI.
