History

In 1871, a location of the United States Life-Saving Service was established in the area. There was a small, 10-acre (40,000 m2) island in the bay adjacent to the station which was owned by a man named Thomas Lovelady. The area was called Lovelady's, which eventually evolved to Loveladies. It has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names.

Beaches

All of Loveladies' beaches are open to the public. There are four access points off of Long Beach Boulevard for visitor access, all of which have free public parking available:

  • Dolphin Lane (North Pumping Station)
  • Coast Avenue
  • Loveladies Lane (South Pumping Station)

    Loveladies is home to the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, established in 1948 by artist Boris Blai.
