As you cruise down Long Beach Boulevard, you will notice that there are 3 different parts of Long Beach Island – each with its own unique perks. Together, the South End, North End, and Central Region make up LBI, the best little island at the Jersey Shore.
The South End is composed of Holgate, Beach Haven, Spray Beach and all the neighborhoods in between. This part of LBI is home to some great surfing beaches, a ton of kid-friendly attractions, museums, many great rental homes, and a bustling nightlife. Take a peek at our southernmost point in Holgate, walk around Beach Haven, or grab a bite to eat on your way to…..
The Central Region! This part of LBI is great for shopping and day-tripping. Stretching from Surf City to Brant Beach, this piece of LBI features many shops, spas, galleries, boutiques, mini golf courses, quick bites, and easy-access beaches. Ship Bottom offers a ton of free concerts during the summer (which are located right off the bridge), Ocean Blvd in Brant Beach is a great spot to ride your bike in the morning, and Surf City has a Farmer’s Market during the Summer!
And last, but certainly not least, the North End! Encapsulating Barnegat Light, all the way through North Beach, the North End of LBI is just as special. This section offers Barnegat Lighthouse State Park, charter fishing, museums & gardens, private beaches, and some great dining spots. Catch a craft show in Harvey Cedars or Viking Village, climb our beloved Old Barney, or view an exhibit in Loveladies, but whatever you do….
Don’t be shy! Check out each of these three regions during your visit – we guarantee you’ll love them all! If you’ve seen the whole island, post your favorite thing to do on LBI in the Comments section!
