Avalon New Jersey is located in the Southern Shore Region of Cap May County on Seven-Mile Island, a barrier island off the coast of New Jersey. The town’s five miles of white sand beach has been voted as the safest and “best beach in New Jersey” by The Washingtonian Magazine. A ˝ mile long boardwalk stretches out next to part of beach, and can be used for walking, jogging and biking, but roller blades and skateboards are not allowed on the boardwalk. Avalon is also home to one of the only remaining high dune systems on the East Coast. A gentle surf and lifeguards make it a great spot for swimming – especially for children – and the clean, wide beach is good for sunbathing, sand castle building, shelling, volleyball, long walks in the surf, clamming and crabbing. Both Avalon and Stone Harbor require "beach tags" (needed on virtually all Jersey shore towns these days,) which can be purchased by an attendant on the beach. All the streets in town that lead to the beach have public access. Due to its location on the eastern edge of Cape May, between Stites Sound and Great Sound, and near Avalon Park, Grace O’Brien Park, Cape May Pointe State Park and Whale Harbor, means there are lots of opportunities for other outdoor recreation in Avalon. Just a few of the activities you will find include boating and fishing, charters for sightseeing and fishing excursions, whale watching, wind surfing, water skiing, hiking, biking, tennis and picnicking. Several great golf courses are within a 15-mile radius of Avalon Beach.

Attractions are not limited to the beach and outdoor sports in Avalon. The town is quite famous in the area for its’ outstanding seafood restaurants that attract visitors from all over the East Coast.

Avalon is home to several art galleries; one which features an ever-changing display of local artists’ originals paintings, popular beach prints, hand made crafts and furniture and high-end reproductions.
