Long Beach Township Beaches

Long Beach Township is the largest town on LBI covering roughly 12 miles of LBI's beaches. The beach experience will be different depending on what town you visit. The north end areas of Long Beach Township (Loveladies and North Beach) offer semi-private beaches with a very low density of beach patrons. The center of Long Beach Township (Brant Beach to North Beach Haven) offer more public beaches with free parking on any street. Holgate, at the very South end of LBI, is again a lower density beach and opens to the Edwin Forsyth Wildlife Refuge which, when open, is undeveloped and un-guarded.

Surf City Beaches

Surf City was the first town to undergo beach replenishment making the beaches here very wide! Due to errors made during the replenishment process, World War I & II era munitions were accidentally deposited on the beaches. While the sand was checked and re-checked to make sure the munitions were removed, dogs are NEVER allowed on the beach nor are metal tipped umbrellas. Surf City's beaches are wide and enjoyable with plenty of room to spread out! All beaches are guarded and bay beaches are available.

Ship Bottom Beaches

Ship Bottom has some of the most crowded beaches on LBI thanks to Ship Bottom being the point of entry to Long Beach Island. Ship Bottom offers fun and excitement on the lifeguarded beaches however parking can be a problem at times thanks to the great number of day trippers that visit Ship Bottom.

 

Beach Haven Beaches

Beach Haven's beach experience will vary depending on what area of the town you visit. The center of Beach Haven is dotted with hotels making for a slightly more crowded beach experience. This is well planned for with additional lifeguards and swimming areas. The south end of Beach Haven is much less crowded and the beaches reflect this lower density with more open space. All beaches are lifeguarded however there are no public bay beaches in Beach Haven.
