What Beaches Are Still Open?

The local experts of the Southern Ocean County Chamber have always said that the LBI Region is better in September, and 2020 is the perfect year to find out why! With remote schedules still in play, heading to beach may be just what is needed for some extra summertime. Enjoy guarded beaches, and even take your dog for a walk! Don’t forget to support local restaurants and merchants during Chowdermonth happening all month long!
