MOST FAVORITE BEACHES are in LBI – WHY?   LBI does not have a homogenized beachfront of highrise hotels and there are not endless areas of the island filled with chain stores, franchise restaurants, or brand named motels.

The island boasts many different communities that each have their own personalities. This means you can travel to different parts of Long Beach Island and find places that have their own special features and distinctive charm!  IN FACT they have 16 Communities on an Island that is only, at the widest point – 18-miles-long!
