Lavallette NJ Brief History:
Captain Cornelius Jacobsen Mey first happened upon Lavallette in 1614. As Captain Mey sailed the Northern end of Long Beach Island, he noted very rough tides through the northern inlet. He named the inlet “Barendegat”, which means “Inlet of the Breakers”. This name has since been Anglicized to “Barnegat”. Lavallette enjoys two beaches on Barnegat Bay as well as eight ocean beaches.
Because of its Bay and Ocean Beaches, Lavallette has always been an ideal family community. There are designated beaches for surfing and fishing, as well as playgrounds and crabbing docks. Visitors can boat, windsurf and water ski on Barnegat Bay.
If you are looking for a vacation that offers beautiful beaches, plenty of water sports and easy access to top rated restaurants and entertainment, Lavallette is the place for you!
