About Avalon

 

Welcome to the Seven Mile Beach!

The Seven Mile Beach is composed of two towns, Avalon and Stone Harbor. While a lot has changed over the years, the one thing that remains the same is the small-town feeling you get when you are here. Whether you are escaping the city for the weekend or planning to build a future here, you won’t be sorry you came. Avalon and Stone Harbor offer a unique charm that you won’t find anywhere else. And you will be surprised how much there is to do within seven miles!

If you are looking for adventure, there are unlimited activities to keep you busy. For the water lovers, you can enjoy boating, sailing, wave running, kayaking, paddle boarding, water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, surfing and swimming in our ocean and back bays. If staying on land suits you better, take up a game of beach volleyball, play tennis at one of our newly renovated courts, or visit one of our nine parks and playgrounds.

For those who prefer a slower pace, enjoy a walk on our seven miles of safe and beautiful beaches, sit back and enjoy a boat tour, take a leisurely bike ride through town or visit one of our public docks and watch the sunset. Shopping also is a favorite pastime. While Stone Harbor has always been known for its famous 96th Street shopping district, Avalon now has a unique shopping district of its own, along Dune Drive. With more than a hundred stores to visit within the seven miles, you are sure to find what you are looking for, and what you didn’t even realize you needed!

When the sun goes down, the excitement is just beginning. Whether it is casual dining with the family or a romantic night out, we have a lot to offer. There are more than 30 restaurants to choose from, with selections from seafood and steak to burgers and wings. After dinner, stop in one of our bars or nightclubs for an after-dinner drink, take in a movie or play a round of miniature golf! From sunrise to sunset, you can make yourself as busy or as relaxed as you want to be.

Welcome to our island and make yourself at home. Whether you are staying for the weekend or the summer, or joining us for the next chapter in your life, we are happy you are here!
