Destination guide

Chadwick Beach – relax on the North Jersey Shore

Located on a narrow barrier island off the coast of New Jersey, jutting straight out into the deep blue Atlantic Ocean, Chadwick Beach is a gently bustling, upscale seaside community, less than 2 hours by car from the bright lights of downtown Manhattan. An altogether more tranquil way of life prevails here, with a stretch of soft white sand the main focal point, and sun-worshipping and surfing among the most popular local pastimes. Chadwick Beach vacation rentals run the gamut from cozy clapboard cottages to lavish summer houses large enough for a family reunion, so you're sure to find your ideal home-away-from-home.

Things to do

Family fun around Chadwick Beach

Should you ever tire of the simple life, you'll find an abundance of attractions within easy reach of your Chadwick Beach vacation rental. For a thrill-packed family day out, head to Fantasy Island Amusement Park on neighboring Long Beach Island. This vibrant waterfront wonderland boasts nerve-shredding thrill rides, colorful carnival games, old-school amusement arcades and refreshment stands serving seaside treats like buttery crab rolls, moreish popcorn shrimp and homemade ice cream. While you're on Long Beach, swing by Barnegat Lighthouse State Park, where you'll find a beautifully renovated 19th-century lighthouse set in 32 gloriously unspoiled acres of park land. Climb the light's 217 steps for panoramic views.


Catch some waves at Chadwick Beach

Chadwick Beach's clear waters are a hotspot for anglers of all ages. Stock up on bait and you can spend the day catching sea bass, bluefish and summer flounder. If you've no fishing experience, you might prefer to try your hand at crabbing, which can be far more immediately rewarding. Chadwick's gently crashing waves are great for surfing, and there are friendly local surf schools nearby to help you get up on your feet in no time. If you're in the mood for a scenic stroll, the mile-long boardwalk in nearby Lavallette is a tranquil spot from which to marvel at the setting sun.


Hazy summer days on Chadwick Beach

Chadwick Beach vacation rentals are highly sought after during the peak summer season of June to August. At this time of year the days are long and typically warm, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies. Late spring and early fall are also great times to visit, with agreeably mild temperatures and fewer vacationers competing for accommodation. Chadwick Beach is particularly quiet in winter, when it can get extremely chilly, and snow is a fairly common occurrence.
