About the Brigantine Beach, NJ Area
Brigantine Beach....an island you'll love for life!
Brigantine Beach, New Jersey is a residential community just north of Atlantic City and is an island bounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Brigantine Inlet, Absecon Inlet and inland waterways.
The name "Brigantine" came from a type of 1600s ship; perhaps one of the first of over three hundred vessels wrecked on the notorious offshore shoals - during a two hundred year period.
Over 6.30 square miles in area, the island plays host to year round residents and visitors and is home to the Brigantine National Wildlife Refuge - a 20,000 acre national park. Pristine beaches, wonderful waterways and a host of family entertainment venues are found all over the island.
