Welcome to Avalon

A stretch of paradise along the South Jersey shore
Affluent, sophisticated Avalon occupies an enviable stretch of Seven Mile Island, a barrier island on the South Jersey Shore. Known as a highly coveted vacation destination, it’s also a sought-after year-round home location, with exclusive beach estates for those seeking summer fun and winter peace and quiet.
In between oceanside mansions and townhomes, home styles vary from expansive Cape Cods to tidy Craftsmans. Wide lawns are lined with colorful flower gardens and bluff-top homes overlook the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a worthy commute for those who need to make their way into the nearby cities — Avalon Boulevard connects to the Garden State Parkway — thanks to the seven miles of beach awaiting you at day’s end.
Neighboring Stone Harbor, midway along the Jersey Cape’s 30 miles of beachfront, is known for its shopping along 96th Street, Hobie Cat racing, an annual art, and craft show, and the Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary, a National Landmark. The quaint borough combines off-season beach living serenity with a bustling summer resort feel.

Local Lifestyle

Being the prestigious beachside community that it is, life in Avalon has a coveted appeal. It’s a place that families may have been vacationing for generations, making memories over the years in this serene resort setting. Nature seekers gravitate to Stone Harbor’s outdoor opportunities, from birdwatching to beachcombing, while Avalon residents love the chic ambiance of their community, where luxury cars and golf carts roll through the quiet streets, on the way to the raw bar to meet up with friends. This is one of those special places where second homes are on the rise, but new homeowners don’t want to share their secret, lest it becomes too busy. Shhh…

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Avalon’s main shopping area is along Dune Drive, where you’ll also find ample restaurants and nightlife options. Return to your favorite mom-and-pop pizza joint summer after summer or check out a new high-end seafood restaurant with eye-catching ocean views. Dance clubs here have been going strong since the ‘70s, so bring your comfy heels.
Eat, drink, and dance at the Whitebrier Restaurant, where you can dine on local seafood and drink from a stellar craft beer list at the Motorboat Club Restaurant, indulge in a full sushi menu at the Octopus Garden, and Mermaid Cafe.
Grab a seat at one of The Princeton Bar & Grill’s outdoor sofas along Dune Drive and watch the world go by. Order burgers and salads, then stick around for cocktails or dancing to live music or DJ’d tunes at The Circle Tavern.
Treat yourself to locally and nationally acclaimed The Reeds at Shelter Haven in Stone Harbor, where you’ll have front-row sunset seating at the Water Star Grille. Or, get the party started with drinks at Buckets Margarita Bar & Cantina. Indulge in a Turkish bath treatment and brine light therapy at the rejuvenating spa and maybe even stay the night, enjoying the comforts of home in richly appointed accommodations.
Love to shop? Both Avalon and Stone Harbor offer amazing deals and the chance to support local businesses with sidewalk sales and Shopaholic Weekends like “Designers and Deals.” 

Things to Do

The beauty of living in Avalon is the freedom to spend the day playing in the waves and on the sand, shopping, dining, or walking the nature trails - or to do nothing at all and simply sit back and toast your gorgeous surroundings. From the Avalon Golf Club to crabbing excursions, attending a performance at the Cape May Stage to learning to surf, there is something for all ages. Kayak through the back bay. Visit the heronry. Go whale watching. Attend a morning beach yoga class. It’s easy to feel at home in Avalon.
