Welcome to Avalon
A chic and affluent enclave boasting unmatched exclusivity.
The picturesque inland neighborhood of Avalon, situated in the northern region of Seven Mile Island—a barrier island encompassing the South Jersey Shore—offers stunning beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and a vibrant collection of Cape Cod and Craftsman-style homes. Bucolic and serene, Avalon homes boast well-manicured lawns overlooking breathtaking bluffs with pristine beach views.
Avalon offers nature lovers a multitude of amenities to enjoy from relaxing beach excursions to wonderful area parks for hiking, biking, or running. Avalon residents enjoy a different pace of life thanks in part to the year-round pleasures to be found in resort-style living, including a bustling nightlife that adds to its allure.
The “jewel of the Jersey Coast,” as Avalon is known, enjoys a rich and storied history dating back to the late 1700s, and the island’s purchase in 1887 by a real estate company intent on creating a seaside resort. Avalon, named after a mythical, magical island said to be King Arthur’s jaunt following the rigors of battle, remains a favorite beachfront destination for residents and travelers alike.
