About LBI NJ | Long Beach Island New Jersey Information and Events


LBI History

Long Beach Island was first scouted by Danish explorers in the mid 1600's and in fact, the name "Barnegat" is a loose translation meaning, "inlet of the breakers". The LBI area at that time was inhabited by Native Americans who were drawn to the area for the rich hunting and fishing.

During the 19th Century Long Beach Island began to gain fame as a summer resort destination. Tourism was given a boost when a rail line was installed making getting to and from Long Beach Island fast and easy. The town of Beach Haven quickly grew to including many stores, restaurants and elegant hotels such as The Baldwin which rivaled anything in New York City.

During the 20th Century LBI continued to grow as a residential area and housing spread to other areas of the Island. Many of the towns and sections we know today borrow their name from Beach Haven to play off the popularity of the area (North Beach Haven, Beach Haven Terrace, etc).

Today LBI is known as a family beach resort with a friendly and clean environment. LBI has been featured on many nationally televised programs highlighting the area and the real estate marketing including shows on HGTV and the Food Network.
