Long Beach Island, or simply LBI, is one of New Jersey’s most popular summer vacation destinations. The narrow 18-mile-long island is home to only about 20,000 residents year-round, but the population swells to over five times that amount in summer months. The natural beauty and abundance of activities available make this barrier island an incredible spot to visit, and many New Jerseyans are familiar with the area. Nearly all of us have seen LBI, but how many of us have seen it from above? Thanks to this fantastic video by YouTube user, KMulholland, we now have the opportunity!

Does this video have you longing for summer? Do you recognize any of your favorite LBI locations? I spot Barnegat Light! If you haven’t yet visited Long Beach Island, I highly recommend you check it out ASAP. Visitors can enjoy attractions including Fantasy Island Amusement Park, Thundering Surf Waterpark, and the Museum of NJ Maritime History, along with spectacular white sand beaches.

Don’t forget all the dining options including top-rated picks and local favorites like The Chicken or the Egg, Ship Bottom Shellfish, Black Whale Bar & Fish House, Sand Box Cafe, and Uncle Will’s Pancake House. If you need a place to stay, the most popular option is private home rentals. Other accommodations include a variety of hotels and motels – The Islander Motel scores top ratings, with 5 stars on Trip Advisor and over 100 reviews.
