    Discover Avalon

    With its enviable location on the shores of Seven Mile Island, it's no surprise that Avalon is renowned as one of New Jersey's most popular vacation spots; this exclusive destination has been attracting the area's jet-setting vacationers for well over a century, and it continues to draw visitors who are keen to sunbathe, surf, and try their hand at a host of water sports. And despite the enduring popularity of its golden sands, thanks to the abundance of Avalon vacation rentals near the beach, it's now easier than ever to find accommodation that's close to this town's star attraction.

    Plenty more fish in the Avalon sea

    As befits a town that prides its reputation on its spectacular seafront, there's a generous offering of water-based activities in Avalon. Surfing in the waters of 30th Street Beach is a perennial favorite, and those seeking to improve their board skills can check out the summertime surf camps that are run by companies in the area. Fishing is another popular Avalon activity, with numerous angling excursions and charter trips available around the shoreline. Some of these outings also give you the chance to see seabirds and dolphins as you drop your line and wait for a bite.

    Living history in Avalon

    Avalon might be best known for its beaches, but modern-day visitors will be surprised to learn that the region originally began life as a wooded agricultural settlement, before the juniper forests on the island were cleared and the area redeveloped as a resort destination for New Jersey's elite in the late 19th century. To get a greater insight into the town's natural and cultural heritage, take a trip to the centrally located Avalon History Center, which explores the area's past and present through a range of public programs and exhibits.

    Sun, sand, and Avalon

    Demand for beachfront Avalon vacation rentals peaks from June to August, and it's not hard to understand why; the town's been gifted with a near-perfect summer climate, with temperatures typically peaking at above 80°F. These balmy conditions are ideal for enjoying everything that Avalon has to offer, whether it's sunbathing, water sports, or just strolling along the beach. If you're looking for a more affordable Avalon vacation rental, consider traveling in May or September, when highest temperatures can still climb to over 75°F. No matter when you choose to visit, booking well in advance ensures the best prices.

    Dip your toes into Avalon's wetlands

    The area around Avalon boasts plenty of other natural assets in addition to its shoreline, with a visit to the Wetlands Institute a particular highlight, especially if you’re traveling with kids. Conveniently located in nearby Stone Harbor, just a 15-minute drive from most Avalon vacation rentals, this much-loved local institution showcases the best of Seven Mile Island's unique coastal and wetland habitats. Self-guided tours are available in winter, and nature excursions, boat rides, and guided beach walks are offered in the summer months. Opening hours and days vary depending on the season, so check the website before you go to avoid disappointment.
