About Long Beach Island, NJ
LBI, as Long Beach Island is known in the local lingo, is a beach lover’s paradise. Even at the widest point of this 18-mile-long island strewn with small shore towns and long stretches of white sand, you’re never more than half a mile from the other side.
Also in the north are the relaxed towns of Surf City, Loveladies, North Beach and Harvey Cedar.
Head south to find bustling Ship Bottom, Holgate, Brant Beach and Beach Haven, the island’s main action center.
Here you’ll find the family-oriented Fantasy Island Amusement Park, a water park.
Beach Haven is home to our resort, Thundering Surf Water Park & Adventure Golf, which features eight giant waterslides, super soaker water guns, giant tipping bucket and much more. The town is also a popular shopping spot, especially the stores in the belly of the reconstructed tall ship at Schooner's Wharf.
