Beach Haven is home to multiple attractions, including the only amusement park on the island: Fantasy Island, off-Broadway quality professional equity theatre: Surflight Theatre, cabaret-style sing-for-your dessert entertainment: Showplace Ice Cream Parlour, Bay Village Shopping Center, the LBI Museum and many distinctive shops and restaurants, including Tucker’s Restaurant, noted in Philadelphia magazine as the number one restaurant on Long Beach Island. The first incident in the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916 took place at the east end of Engleside Avenue. The following series of attacks along the Jersey Shore became the basis for the book Jaws, by Peter Benchley. There is also a water park, Thundering Surf, and numerous miniature golf facilities. Veteran’s Bicentennial Park, in the heart of Beach Haven, hosts many summer concerts, flea markets and parades, and an open park area for general recreation. As the island is only a few blocks wide, the beach and the bay are readily accessible from anywhere in Beach Haven. Pavilions could be found at Fifth and Pearl Streets, both of which were washed away by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012. Beach badges are required and can be purchased at Borough Hall or the Centre Street badge booth.
