Discover the shore's best kept secret!

Avon-by-the-Sea, New Jersey is a four season, seaside, Victorian community located on the Atlantic Ocean – just 60 miles from New York City and Philadelphia.

If you love the sea, Avon-by-the-Sea is the place for you. Avon is surrounded by three different bodies of water. To the north is Sylvan Lake, the quiet home of our famous swans. The southern border of town is the busy Shark River inlet where you can watch our drawbridges and a parade of boats come and go. On the east is the mighty Atlantic Ocean where you can enjoy the rolling surf, laughing gulls and gentle sea breezes.

Avon-by-the-Sea has much to offer vacationers and day visitors. Avon’s clean, white sandy beaches are a great place to relax, swim and bask in the summer sun. Our fine restaurants and quaint shops will round out your “day at the beach.”

In the quiet seasons our non-commercial boardwalk, replete with Victorian lamps, benches and pavilions, is a wonderful place to stroll and unwind. Fishing, boating and scuba diving are year ’round activities in Avon-by-the-Sea.
