Go to the north end to see the lighthouse and do some fishing either on land or by boat, travel to the southern end to see the protected Federal Wildlife Refuge and see what the island used to look like. There are plenty of beaches to swim at in between, so go enjoy yourself.

Salt air in the lungs and a trip over the causeway bridge and you have arrived on LBI. Sand, ocean, bay, and sun are the key ingredients for "the shore". So much to do and so little time. Come visit and enjoy.

I've been coming to LBI for years but had a 6 year brake till coming back. It's still just as awesome. Even out of season which is my preferred time to visit the old favorites are still open and just as great. LBI managed to maintain its charm. Same local businesses that have been there for years.

I was born here on the Jersey Shore and have not been back here in 15 years and what a difference in 2/2017. It seems everything is getting washed up. Yes of course Sandy did a number here but i guess i didn't expect the damage as this bad. Oh well my dad enjoyed the cool breeze. The Barnegat Lighthouse... More

Visitors are surrounded by the beauty of natural beach beauty and delicious restaurants, art exhibits, kite flying contests and film festivals. No vacation is long enough and soon buying becomes the goal.
