During the day, Strathmere beaches are popular destinations for inland visitors who wish to enjoy a free, tag-less beach. But at night, aside from diners who come in to town to dine at one of Strathmere’s three restaurants, mostly who you will find here are home owners, members of the island’s only trailer resort, or vacationers who have rented someone else’s home.
People usually don’t come and stay in Strathmere just overnight, with the exception of a few who may rent a room in the only motel in town, the Strathmere Inn. But with only 15 rooms, it cannot accommodate many visitors and is only open during the summer. Please consult their website if you are interested in checking it out – otherwise, plan to spend your weekend in a neighboring town such as Sea Isle or Ocean City.
Camping off-island is always an option for those who are willing to rough it. There are several campgrounds on Route 9, not far from Sea Isle and Ocean City.
If you are interested in renting a home for a week, month or season, you may go through a traditional real estate office. There is also a growing number of online rental resources through websites such as Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO), Home Away and even some AirBNB options are beginning to pop up in and around Strathmere.
