Stayed here for a couple of days in August. We rented a house right across the street from the beach. It's a very clean beach, with lifeguards on duty. The water was refreshing after hanging out on the beach all day. Great waves to play in although the rip tide was pretty strong on two of the days that we... More

We have been coming here for years for a week during summer vacation. We also go to Cape Cod but prefer LBI even though it is a further drive from my home. It is much less commercialized than the Cape and the small contained size of the island makes it so much more quaint. The area is very family orientated,... More

This was the 7th summer in a row where we spent a week with our children and grandchildren- 11 of us to be exact. The beaches are clean, beautiful and peaceful. It is extremly relaxing to sit on the beach, walk along the ocean's edge ,swim and use bogey boards. There are many restaurants ,amusements and ice cream shops. The... More

Always love going to LBI, especially to the HAND store. From hardware to clothing, they have everything you need.

It's much less hectic and congested than most tourist traps. The beaches are beautiful, however they need more lifeguards and larger swimming areas. The swimming was restricted to a 40 or 50 yard wide area and the surfing area was 300 yards wide. My other issue is the street signs. They are only small wooden posts with dark numbers that... More

My family and my aunt's family visited this island for several years during a couple of weeks in the summer. My aunt and uncle purchased a home on the island after renting for a few years. This was done several years ago. The beaches are great. There are a few scenic attractions on the island; and there are boat trips... More

LBI has everything but a boardwalk. But is has nice beaches, family friendly rides, mini golf, camps and a large selection of places to eat.

We love LBI. We've spent 6-8 of the last 10 summer vacations there and never regret a moment. There's something for everyone. It's peaceful on the beaches, you can find nightlife if you're looking for it, great meals, beautiful sunsets.....just a joy. We even make a trip or two during the cooler months just to cruise the island, pop into... More

We went mid August and hit the beach at 9:00 am. The beach was open with only a sprinkling of people. By 11:00 am it gets more crowded, but not nearly as bad as Rehobeth DE or Wildwood. No boardwalk, but close to on street parking (4th street across from the 5&10 is where we park). Beautiful beach, clean clear... More
