Long Beach Island, NJ Vacation Rentals
Long Beach Island is located in Ocean County, New Jersey and is a part of Long Beach Island. Situated about 4-6 miles out from the mainland, Long Beach Island is an 18-mile long Barrier Island. It features some of the most magical white sugar sand beaches on the east coast, fringed by dunes. Most of them are open to the public. Other than sunbathing and swimming in the clear waters of the ocean, fishing is a favorite pastime of both visitors and residents. A walk along the shore, especially in the evening, will find anglers any season of the year.
The life on the island is slow-paced, very relaxing and it remains the premier spot in New Jersey for quiet time by the ocean. The island is a popular vacation destination for thousands of people from May through November. As it is only a quarter mile wide, visitors are close to both the sea and the bay.
Long Beach Island offers an upscale accommodation and dining alternative. There are many Victorian houses that give the opportunity to see different and magnificent architectures and that are witnesses of a colorful and interesting history. Restaurants abound on the Island, from casual to exquisite cuisine, Italian to Chinese, and of course seafood! October brings the Annual Chowderfest, where visitors can taste Manhattan and New England clam chowders made by the chefs of area restaurants. It has become a big event and this is a great time to visit the region.
