Basking in Avon-by-the-Sea

From your Avon-by-the-Sea vacation rental, you can explore the town on foot or by bike quite happily. A stroll along the beachfront boardwalk, past the elegant pavilion is a definite rite of passage when visiting. Then, head to the beach itself to relax on the wide expanse of soft sand. The Atlantic Ocean waves are perfect for enjoying the fantastic surfing, swimming, kayaking, or windsurfing opportunities of New Jersey. Or, charter a boat for another fun, family-friendly activity – whether you fancy enjoying a spot of deep sea fishing, or whale and shark spotting.

Family fun in Avon-by-the-Sea

A short drive north from your Avon-by-the-Sea vacation rental, you'll find the beachside Asbury Splash Park at Asbury Park. This is a great place to come if you have kids in tow, and the small park is also home to a boating lake with pedal boats to rent. Kids will also love the boardwalk and aquarium at Point Pleasant, 20 minutes to the south. If you're staying at your Avon-by-the-Sea vacation rental without the kids, and don't mind a slightly longer drive, the boardwalk, casinos, and nightlife of Atlantic City can be reached in just over an hour.

Avon-by-the-Sea through the seasons

A perfect summer vacation destination, Avon-by-the-Sea enjoys pleasant summer temperatures into the 70s and 80s from June into September. At either end of the summer season, spring and fall are great times of year to visit because you can enjoy the boardwalk, beaches, shops, and restaurants without the summer crowds. While some shops and restaurants do close over winter, and temperatures will drop, winter can also be a rewarding time to book an Avon-by-the-Sea vacation rental if you enjoy romantic, windswept walks on the beach.

Get back to nature in Avon-by-the-Sea

Avon-by-the-Sea sits beside the Atlantic Ocean, but it is also sandwiched between other bodies of water. On the south side of town, the Shark River Inlet, which connects the Atlantic Ocean with the Shark River, is a popular fishing spot. To the north, Sylvan Lake is just 1.2 miles in circumference, but its tranquil waters are home to a variety of wildlife and fresh water fish. Further inland, a 20-minute drive away, the Allaire State Park has miles of scenic hiking and biking trails and a renowned, restored 19th-century ironworks.
