The Seven Mile Island

From the Avalon Chamber of Commerce: "For more than a century, Avalon has been a popular vacation destination for beach lovers everywhere. Located on the 7 Mile Beach, sharing the island with Stone Harbor to the south, this island offers a unique charm that you won’t find anywhere else.

You will certainly be surprised at how much there is to do within just seven miles. If hitting the beach is your idea of a vacation, enjoy our seven-mile stretch of white-sand beaches, touched by the Atlantic Ocean. For the water lovers, the options are endless. From swimming and surfing to boating and kayaking, you can spend hours on the water! Our beautiful beach is filled with adventures and memories just waiting to be made.

On the days when the weather just isn’t cooperating, or maybe when you need a break from the sand and sun, shopping is a wonderful alternative. Avalon’s downtown shopping district has everything you need including high-end boutiques and retail stores featuring clothing, shoes, accessories, beach toys, books and much more.

The fun doesn’t end when the sun goes down, in fact for many it is just beginning! Plan a night with the family including several mini golf locations throughout town. Enjoy family dining or a romantic dinner for two and top it off with a cone of homemade ice cream! Be sure to experience one of our many nighttime hot spots, from acoustic singers to popular bands, places to dance the night away and smaller venues to sit and chat with friends, we have it all!

Whether it’s day or night, there is so much to do here in Avalon and on the 7 Mile Beach. We guarantee you will come back year after year!"

From Cape May County: "The Seashore at its Best", is how the quaint little town of Stone Harbor refers to itself. Nestled midway along the Jersey Cape's 30 miles of breathtaking beach front, Stone Harbor has been attracting visitors to its unique vacation resort for more than 75 years. The clean quiet family resort community boasts of beautiful protected beaches, fine restaurants, an outstanding shopping district and relaxed atmosphere. Modern motels, condominiums and single family homes offer the vacationer the finest accommodations."
