Lazy days and entertaining nights in Brigantine

For the ultimate unspoiled vacation destination, head to the island city of Brigantine. In this beautiful destination, summers are spent lazing on the beach, which goes without saying when they stretch along the entire eastern coast of the island. Inland, you’ll find a quaint town center which boasts a range of fabulous specialty shops to explore by day, great restaurants for evening dining, and vibrant bars to hit once the sun goes down. With a superb cozy feel to the island, you’ll find that Brigantine vacation rentals have the same vibe.

Bask on Brigantine’s gorgeous sands

The undeniable highlight of Brigantine is Brigantine Beach, with its spectacular white sands that stretch for miles around; the perfect place to soak up the summer sun or to go for a relaxing dip in the sea. No visit to the beach would be complete without a spot of surfing, and Brigantine Beach provides ample opportunities for those wanting to learn. Experienced surfers will love the occasional choppy waves, too. Just a stone’s throw from many Brigantine vacation rentals is the vibrant Farmers’ Market, which runs from May through September.

Explore the history of Brigantine

When you’re not sunning yourself on the beach, head into town and explore one of the city’s excellent museums, like the Brigantine History Museum. Here, you’ll find a full insight into the island’s history through its many artifacts and fascinating collection of photographs from the 19th and 20th centuries. The Marine Mammal Stranding Center is also well worth a visit. As well as an educational exhibit on the marine life of the Atlantic Ocean and the work that the custodians do to save stranded animals, there’s also a 1,000-gallon outdoor tank featuring the many sea creatures that kids will simply love.

Enjoy a perfect summer getaway in Brigantine

The hot summer months are the obvious time to visit, especially if you’re looking to enjoy the best of the beach, with average highs of around 82 degrees. For a little more privacy, consider one of the many Brigantine vacation rentals with private pools for that added hint of luxury when you’re working on that tan.

Discover Brigantine’s incredible wildlife

A viewing platform gives you the perfect vantage point for spotting wildlife, which includes beach-swelling piping plover birds, nesting terrapins, and pods of dolphins frolicking in the ocean.
