A charming seaside community in Atlantic County, South Jersey's Brigantine exudes character, beauty, and the welcoming atmosphere of a friendly island town. Located on Brigantine Beach Island, the only road to and from this secluded area is New Jersey Route 87.

In 2008, the New Jersey Monthly voted Brigantine as the 36th best place to live in New Jersey. This picturesque island community boasts a pristine beach setting, Atlantic City nightlife just minutes away, warm, approachable locals, and a unique character and eccentric history that guarantees all visitors a memorable experience. Brigantine's alluring beaches offer a plethora of recreational activities, from swimming to surfing, from kite flying to running to simply relaxing with a good book. Designated fishing areas are sure to entice the sport-fisherman in your group.

In addition to its lively beach scene, Brigantine's land-based attractions include the Brigantine Beach Historical Museum, which houses an array of photographs and artifacts illustrating the town's dynamic history. One of its food staples, Laguna Grill Martini Bar, features live entertainment, creative martinis, and a mouth-watering menu. And if your trip falls during the summer, sit outside on the deck while sipping a cooling tropical drink and enjoying the stunning ocean view. Brigantine also showcases a summer concert series on 26th Street and the Brigantine Avenue Gazebo lasts every Wednesday from the beginning of July until Labor Day. The Marine Mammal Stranding Center, which treats, rehabilitates, and releases stranded marine mammals and sea turtles, features an outdoor observation tank in summer months (a favorite with children) and a gift shop. The nearby attractions of the famous Atlantic City Boardwalk and casinos make Brigantine an appealing destination for vacation-goers of all ages.
