Description:
Long Beach Island (colloquially known as LBI or simply The Island) is a barrier island and summer colony along the Atlantic Ocean coast of Ocean County, New Jersey in the United States. Aligned north-south, the northern portion is generally slightly higher end, low-density residential; whereas the southern portion possesses more economical, higher-density housing and considerable commercial development. The primary industries include tourism, fishing, and real estate. The only access point to the island by land is the single bridge, The Causeway, from Manahawkin on the mainland to Ship Bottom on the island. Access is also by water transport. Among the most significant of landmarks on the island are Barnegat Lighthouse, located on the northern tip and the Holgate Unit of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge on the south end.

As of the United States Census, 2000, a total of 8,556 people in six separate municipalities declared Long Beach Island home on a year-round basis. However, the population in these communities swells significantly in the summer months to approximately 100,000 with part-time residents and tourists. The island's close knit communities are largely affluent and contain many vacation homes for wealthy residents in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and suburban North and South Jersey.
