A maritime forest as well as Avalon’s “High Dunes,” the highest found on the southern New Jersey barrier islands, line some of its beaches. The close proximity of the beaches, bay and town allow for walking from the enjoyment of sand, sun and water activities to the pleasure of downtown ice cream, mini-golf, quaint shops, a new generation of boutiques, art galleries and eclectic dining.
