Things to do

Family fun in Beach Haven

Fantasy Island Amusement Park is one of the top family attractions in Beach Haven, drawing vacationers from across Long Beach Island and further afield. The park is themed around the resort’s Victorian heritage, with brick sidewalks, Tiffany glass chandeliers, and ornate lampposts. The focal point is the giant Ferris wheel, while the highlight of many visits is a ride on the gaily painted carousel, which was custom-designed using authentic turn-of-the-century molds. Next door, Thundering Surf Water Park provides thrills and spills of a different kind, featuring numerous slides, a lazy river, and a beach specially designed for toddlers.


Summer action in Beach Haven

Swimming, fishing, surfing, and kayaking are part of everyday life in this resort, so if you’re lucky enough to have bagged a Beach Haven vacation rental on the beach, you’ll never be far from the action. The pace steps up a gear during the busy summer season, with live music in Veteran’s Park, fireworks on the bay, and yoga on the beach. Self-guided tours of Beach Haven’s downtown help to put into context the local heritage landmarks, from the historic public library that houses a small museum of local life to the celebrated Surflight Theater.


Beach Haven—sunshine all summer long

Long Beach Island’s reliable subtropical climate is one of the reasons for its enduring popularity as a summer getaway. The humidity that’s prevalent further inland is tempered by fresh sea breezes, while balmy evenings are perfect for enjoying barbecues on the starlit patios of Beach Haven vacation rentals. July and August are the wettest months, with the occasional thunderstorm a possibility. Late fall is an ideal time to snap up off-peak bargains on Beach Haven vacation rentals and benefit from fewer crowds, although some seasonal attractions may be closed.

Natural features

Beach heaven in Beach Haven

Beach Haven residents take deserved pride in the long stretch of sand that’s given the town its name. The sand dunes that protect Long Beach Island from tidal surges are one of the coastline’s most striking natural features, and the warm waters of the Atlantic create ideal conditions for sport fishing, with charter boats heading far out to sea from Beach Haven in search of tuna, marlin, or sea bass. Closer to shore, it’s possible to catch flounder in the surf and be rewarded with a tasty supper into the bargain.
