Most of us love the idea of giving the perfect gift for that special someone in our life. Finding that perfect gift, however, is another story. After taking everything into consideration, such as the person’s age, gender, personality, and interests, the ideas can sometimes dwindle. But there is one gift that nearly everyone appreciates – the gift of travel. Although finding the perfect location can add another challenge, I’ll make it easy for you – a Long Beach Island, NJ vacation at Sand Castle Bed & Breakfast.
You may be wondering, why Long Beach Island (LBI)? Why Sand Castle B&B? There are many reasons why, but here are a few important ones.
Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Barnegat Bay to the west, this long and narrow stretch of land offers plenty of water activities. It doesn’t matter what interests your loved one when it comes to water, here you’ll find everything from parasailing, paddling, and swimming to boating, fishing, and boat tours. Add a parasailing or boat tour gift certificate to customize the gift even more. Plus, our B&B not only features a beautiful in-ground swimming pool, but it’s also located right on Barnegat Bay. In fact, each of our guest rooms offer stunning Bay or poolside views, so water is the one of the first sights seen in morning and one of the last seen in the evening.
Where there’s water, you will usually find beaches. That being said, LBI’s beaches are some of the most beautiful in the country. And there are plenty of them! What’s so great is that the Atlantic Ocean Beachfront is only a 3-minute drive or 8-minute walk from Sand Castle B&B, offering wide and sandy beaches with high dunes, and incredible sunrises, just steps away. Sunbathing, strolling down the beach, collecting seashells, watching the sunrise, taking photographs… it’s all possible on LBI.
The dining options seem quite endless here on the Island. In fact, there’s something to appeal to every palate, such as fresh seafood, French or Italian cuisine, American diner food or pizza. Amidst all of the restaurants in the area, we do have our favorites. So, check out 10 of the places to eat near Barnegat Light, NJ. We also offer a delicious, homemade breakfast each morning, which includes our famous scones, muffins and pastries, fresh fruit, a cereal station, and hot entrees like Eggs Benedict, breakfast casserole, and pancakes. Does your loved one have special dietary needs? No problem. With a 48-hour notice, we will accommodate any dietary restrictions or preferences.
Beach towns are often times known for their shopping, and LBI is no exception. While we do have your typical souvenir and gift shops, we also have unique stores and boutiques to find that extra special hidden treasure. There are two major shopping areas near the B&B: The Shops on Broadway near the Lighthouse and the Shops at Viking Village on at the Bay at 19th Street.
Our B&B is luxury at its finest. Each of our guest rooms and suites is individually furnished and appointed to reflect the peaceful and romantic seaside environment. The private attached bathrooms are modern and offer either Jacuzzi tubs or oversized showers, as well as plush bath towels and soft, comfortable robes. Plus, our guest rooms have exterior entrances to allow guests easy access from the outside and additional privacy. We offer a rooftop deck with private lounge area for stunning views and sunsets, as well as a spacious parlor with library, game tables and grand piano. Whether your loved one prefers reading, playing piano, bird watching, or bicycling, it’s all possible here, and much more.
These are just a few of the reasons why a getaway to Sand Castle Bed & Breakfast on LBI is the perfect gift to give. It’s also a gift that keeps on giving as the wonderful memories live on.
