Ship Bottom is known as the “Gateway To Long Beach Island” because of its convenient location at the foot of the only bridge onto the island. Although it is a popular destination for day-trippers, Ship Bottom also hosts numerous hotels and private rental accommodations for visitors looking to be centrally located amongst all LBI has to offer. Looking to launch a personal watercraft or boat? Be sure to make your way to the Ship Bottom boat ramp at 11th Street and the Bay for a day on the water. This same boat ramp also hosts evening concerts throughout the summer as well. Ship Bottom is also home to LBI’s annual Christmas Parade in early December.
