Just a few miles from Atlantic City, Brigantine is a beautiful scenic town with miles of coastline. It offers the perfect location for those looking for a peaceful beach vacation while still offering close proximity to the hustle and bustle of Atlantic City. 

Brigantine Beach

Miles of beautiful sandy beaches in Brigantine provide the best location for any kind of beach activity to put a cherry on top of your vacation. However, in order to spend some time on these beautiful Brigantine Beaches, you must purchase a beach tag.

Swimming in the Atlantic is one of the most popular beach activities here on Brigantine Beach. Swimming is only permitted in the protected area of the beach when lifeguards are present. Fishing, Boating, Jet skiing, and Kayaking are also fun water-based activities that you can do on designated portions of the beach.

There are also a variety of sandy beach activities that you can participate in if you don’t feel like getting in the water. On those windy days, you can break out the kite and see it soaring across the sky. If you want to make some lifelong memories with the little ones in your family, going fishing is always a fun time.

Things to do around the Island

While the beach is the main draw to the area, there is so much you can do. The Atlantic County Library, Brigantine Historical Museum, and Sea Life Museum are great places to go for those unexpected rainy days. Each of these places offers great educational programs about the area and what the local community is doing to preserve the beautiful land.

Brigantine is a bike-friendly town so you can go ultimately anywhere on a bike. You can take a bike ride to the large, two-story viewing platform in North Brigantine Beach which is perfect for birdwatching all year round. You can visit the Brigantine Farmers Market during the summer months to find the best local produce and products. And if you decide to bring Fido along, you can take them to the local dog parks for them to blow off some steam after a long car ride.
