Stone Harbor New Jersey is first and foremost a beach community. Its’ three miles of protected, pristine beaches have attracted tourists for over 75 years. The village is centrally located in Cape May County on New Jersey’s Atlantic Coast near the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse and Grassy Sound. Outdoor recreation such as swimming, surfing, wave running, fishing, boating, beach volleyball and water skiing are all very popular in the area. It’s also a tranquil haven for those looking to simply relax on the beach, soak up the sun, or spend some quiet time in nature. Both Stone Harbor and Avalon, the other resort town on Seven-Mile Island, require "beach tags" (needed on virtually all Jersey shore towns these days,) which can usually be purchased by an attendant on the beach. Parks and recreation areas offer miniature golf, baseball, soccer, shuffleboard, tennis and golf. Charter boat fleets for deep-sea fishing and sightseeing are available, for half or full day trips and overnight trips, as well. You can go sailing, ride on an 80-foot schooner ship, and old-fashioned paddleboat or on a guided kayak tour. Stone Harbor is home to the world-renowned Wetlands Institute, located just over the 96th Street Bridge. This is a research institute that specializes in coastal ecosystems, and offers a variety of structured programs for children and adults. It has saltwater aquariums, a touch tank, an observation tower and guided and self-guided marsh tours almost every day. The Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary is another great place to learn about nature. This twenty-one acre bird refuge is a registered National Landmark and home to thousands of species of birds. Stone Harbor also has a very nice shopping district, located between the beach and the bay, with more than one hundred unique shops, art galleries, fine restaurants and cafes.

With its central location, Stone Harbor is just a short drive to the other Seven-Mile Island beach communities of Avalon, Cape May, Cape May Point, Ocean City, Sea Isle City, North Wildwood, West Wildwood, Wildwood Crest and Wildwood. Just a few other attractions you can expect to find in the area include the Cape May Park and Zoo and the Leamings Run Gardens, which is the largest annual garden in the U.S. and has a winding path that leads you to an authentic cabin built in 1695. Victorian Cape May Village is called America’s oldest seaside resort. It is filled with beautiful restored Victorian buildings, gaslights, gingerbread trim and gables. The whole village is a National Historic Landmark and many of the buildings are open for tours. Historic Cold Spring Village, located in the town of Cape May, is an open-air living museum featuring the lifestyle, architecture, trades and crafts of rural life in the 1800s. Stone Harbor is also just minutes to the Wildwoods’ world famous boardwalk. Wildwoods is the ultimate boardwalk with more rides than any other shore town in New Jersey. The boardwalk piers extend out over the beach and roller coasters, kiddy rides, two water parks and an assortment of carnival-type games keep you hopping. Biking is allowed on the boardwalk before 10:30 A.M.
