Avalon, NJ

Situated at the northern end of the " Seven Mile Beach Island ." Avalon extends eastward one mile further into the ocean than its neighboring resorts and has given itself the motto "Cooler by a Mile." Beach and water activities highlight the daytime pleasures of an Avalon vacation. This beachfront community is dotted with distinctive homes and beach cottages and hosts hundreds of brightly colored sailboats, sleek motor boats and comfortable yachts during the summer months. Some of the finest accommodations are found on this island resort. Visitors return to Avalon throughout both the summer and quiet seasons for peaceful and relaxing vacations. Beautiful beaches and gentle surf combine with fine shopping, exquisite restaurants and exciting nightclubs for a great vacation escape.

The "high dunes" of Avalon have been carefully preserved over the years. These dunes create a beautiful, natural setting for the beaches and protect them as well, from storm erosion. Walkways have been erected at the street ends to allow access to the beach. The dune areas of the beach are covered with natural foliage and plant life indigenous to the area.

At one time, all the beaches along the coast were covered with the same foliage as that found along the Avalon beaches. The residents of Avalon are also proud of their public parks and playgrounds. Beautifully maintained by the residents, these parks offer a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle usually associated with an action-packed vacation. Fishing boats line the back bay area.

The Avalon Sport Fishing Center , located at the northern end of the resort, between 15th and 16th streets at the bay, is headquarters for large fleet of charter and head boats. Situated at the southern end of Avalon at 54th and the bay is the Bay Park Marina with a municipal boat ramp and slips. Charter, party and private boats leave daily , for the easily accessible back bay, ocean and canyon fishing areas. You can also fish from the surf, jetties and piers throughout this resort community.
