Long Beach Island, New Jersey

Visit the sunny shores of Long Beach Island with Inspirato. This 18-mile-long island is strewn with small shore towns and long stretches of white sand—and even at its widest point, you’re never more than a half-mile from the other side. Inspirato’s five-bedroom Lillie is less than a block from the beach and offers its own pool and two-tier rooftop deck with expansive ocean views.

The Jersey Shore’s Quieter Side

Long Beach Island (or LBI as it is known to locals) is a barrier island off the coast of central New Jersey known for its soft white-sand beaches and laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere. Only 18 miles long and about half a mile wide, LBI is a popular drive-to vacation destination for well-heeled travelers hailing from New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia. Unlike busier destinations on the Jersey Shore, you won’t find any high rises, boardwalks, or campy tourist attractions on Long Beach Island. Here, you can relax on quiet beaches, ride your bike just about anywhere, and enjoy sailing, swimming, fishing, tennis, and more.
