Local Attractions on LBI
Long Beach Island is a barrier island approximately 18 miles long, three miles at sea, and only about 4 blocks wide at its widest point. It's known for its pristine white sand beaches, great boating, excellent sailing, local fishing and crabbing, good dining, and a family atmosphere.
Most of the beaches south of the causeway are publicly accessible. As you go north through Loveladies and North Beach, you will find that the beaches are private and access is restricted.The beaches are relatively narrow. The surf can be rough at times due to the relatively steep drop-offs.
Boat access to the ocean is limited to Barnegat Inlet to the north and Beach Haven Inlet to the south. The Manahawkin Bridge provides the only way on and off the island.
