About Ship Bottom

If you’ve ever taken the bridge to Long Beach Island (or LBI, as the locals call it), then you’ve been to Ship Bottom.

This “Gateway To Long Beach Island” is centrally located among all the exciting activities that this popular vacation spot has to offer. That’s why so many visitors choose to stay in Ship Bottom rentals.

Relax on the Beach

This picturesque beach is well-maintained and never too crowded. You can swim in the ocean, play beach volleyball, sunbathe on soft sand, or surf the waves. The Ship Bottom Beach is a close walk to waterfront restaurants, and visitors always keep an ear out for the bells of an ice cream truck.

Go Boating and Fishing

If you love to spend time boating on the ocean or the bay, then Ship Bottom is the perfect place to visit. First, stop by Fisherman's Headquarters, a full-service bait and tackle shop that offers rod and reel repair, fishing reports, and plenty of information for beginners. Then, head to the Ship Bottom Boat Ramp or Crab Cove Pier.

Check Out a Free Summer Concert

Once a week during summer nights, the town holds a free concert at the Waterfront Park. Bring beach chairs and enjoy fantastic live music right beside the bay.

Explore the Town

From the surf shop to local restaurants, there are so many places to visit in Ship Bottom. The town will also frequently hold sidewalk sales, flea markets, and town-wide yard sales.

Play a Round of Mini Golf

Ship Bottom has some of the best mini golf on the Jersey Shore. Take the family to fun courses for a quick game or a challenging tournament. One great spot even has an attached arcade with a snack bar.

Enjoy Nature

At the Sunset Point Community Park on Barnegat Bay, you can find a very successful Purple Martin colony. These beautiful songbirds are the largest swallow in North America. Like many Long Beach Island visitors, the Purple Martins leave Ship Bottom at the end of summer and return in April.

Celebrate with the Ship Bottom Christmas Parade

If you book a Ship Bottom rental during the holidays, you are sure to have a magical time. In early December, townsfolk and visitors gather for music, hot chocolate, and caroling for the Annual Christmas Tree Lighting. Then, it’s time for the Ship Bottom Christmas Parade.

Families, businesses, and organizations march and create floats, hoping to win a prize. Kids can even mail letters to Santa Claus.

Discover Long Beach Island

Long Beach Island might only be a quarter-mile wide, but there is so much to do! Here are a few of our top suggestions:

  • Get your heart rate up with water sports like parasailing and jet skiing.
  • Stop by one of the island’s gorgeous art galleries.
  • Visit in October and taste local fare at Chowderfest.

  • Enjoy thrills at the Fantasy Island Amusement Park.
  • Catch a live show in Beach Haven.
