Stone Harbor, known as “the seashore at its best,” is a small New Jersey town with a big personality. With a year-round population of under 1,000 residents that swells to over 20,000 people in the summer due to the many vacationers and visitors, Stone Harbor is the perfect place to take a peaceful break from hectic city life and relax on the beach with family and friends.
Located along the famed shore of New Jersey, Stone Harbor is the ultimate beach escape destination. The town’s fascinating history begins in the late 1800’s, when the area was developed as a beach resort for people living on the East Coast. Today, the town is known for both its commercial success and opportunities for relaxation. If you’re looking to surf while in town, start your visit at Nun’s Beach—a popular local spot connected to the Villa Maria by the Sea convent (opened in the 1930’s). If you’re looking for a more educational vacation, make sure to stop by the Wetlands Institute—many different tours are offered, and there are plenty of activities offered for every member of your family. Nature is king in Stone Harbor—another very popular activity is the Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary. Especially popular with kids, the interesting information available here about the different local species is sure to “wow” you. If you’re getting hungry after all of these adventures, don’t fret—Stone Harbor is known for its adorable little eateries and restaurants located all throughout the town. For typical American fare, stop by Fred’s Tavern for the best burger and fries in town. Spiaggeta is another popular choice amongst locals—the Italian cuisine is highly rated. Lastly, if you’re just looking for a quick snack between swims at the beach, stop by Springer’s Homemade Ice Cream for a treat for your whole group.
