A seaside stay near Cape May at a year-round coastal resort on one of New Jersey’s only private beaches

Those who’ve experienced the Jersey Shore know it as a stretch of sandy Atlantic coast that’s often, if anything, a quiet and wholesome retreat from bass-pumping parties and their flashy characters. At Icona Diamond Beach, it’s especially so, because this effortlessly elegant resort owns one of the Shore’s (and, for that matter, the state’s) only private beaches. Idyllic Diamond Beach isn’t only cool ocean waters and warm breezes, either; the hotel’s Bungalow No. 7 Beach Bar keeps it fun and festive, with food, cocktails, fire pits and live music, right on the sand.

This ocean enclave may be the most obvious display of Icona’s beachy pride, but it’s certainly not the only one. This TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award 2016 winner (in the Top 25 Hotels in the United States category) calls itself a love letter to the Shore, and its local loyalties are clear all over. You can take a leisurely lounge or dreamy dip at its respective sundeck and heated outdoor pool, while Coastal Blue, the other resto-bar, pairs farmers-market produce with the catch of the day. Meanwhile, you’ll have your own suite to call home. It’ll have Art Deco-meets-Sixties décor, too, because every letter needs a signature flourish.
