Beautiful Stone Harbor New Jersey - A Jersey Shore Gem

One of my absolute favorite beaches to visit happens to be in Stone Harbor New Jersey. This beautiful beach isn't as crowded at other South Jersey Beaches like Wildwood, Cape May and Ocean City so that is partly why I love Stone Harbor.

Stone Harbor is a beautiful 7 mile long island situated on the Jersey Cape and only 10 minutes away from Wildwood, 15 minutes from Ocean City and about 20 minutes away from Cape May. It's an older beach town that is family-friendly.

This wonderful little sea gem is like a quaint little sea town with cobblestone sidewalks, a nice shopping/business district and oodles of fantastic places to eat. Unlike other Jersey Shore beaches...Stone Harbor doesn't have an official boardwalk which I think is really nice for those of us who don't want to be near all of that hustle and bustle. With that said...they have fantastic clean and wide beaches and you won't have to squeeze into a spot on their beaches as there is plenty of beach to go around.

I love visiting Stone Harbor even though we don't stay in Stone Harbor (we stay in North Wildwood) we do like to drive up to Stone Harbor and spend a day on their beach and shopping their businesses when we visit the Jersey Shore.

Stone Harbor is definitely the place you want to be if you don't like a lot of large crowds, traffic jams and loud noises. I often refer to this place as a quieter beach town that is rich in coastal culture and just has a more laid-back atmosphere to it. It is definitely a nice place to visit at the Jersey Shore!
