There are many places to dine, and there are nice shops as well. This appears to be very family oriented , although it is a... More

Great place for the family to relax and enjoy a day shopping or at the beach. Here you can find great food, ice cream, sea food, ect. Although the beach is not free to get in but its worth it considering how clean it is.

LBI is truly the nicest of all NJ beaches. Pre/Post Thanksgiving is perfect time of year to enjoy both Bayside and Oceanside! The best trip to "The Cape" is LBI. Go solo or bring the whole crew!

Long Beach Island is the quintessential Jersey Shore. The beaches are pristine; they are maintained daily. The locals are up-scale. There are numerous excellent restaurants, motels, shoppes . . . to choose from. It's a great vacation get-away. Its remote location adds to its attraction.

The length of the beaches truly define the island. Nice see different area of the beach and the different communities on the island. End of August was a great time to visit.
