Never seen any on LBI except the fake ones at the mini-golf courses The ones at Jenkinsons are real but they are obviously planted in the spring and then dug back up and stored in a greenhouse of some kind over the winter.

And only if they have flamingos, too.

Ocean Place (Resort & Spa) in Long Branch has palms on their property and the beach. The Sea Shell in Beach Haven has them on the property. It's beach front, but the dune was raised last year, so I'm not sure if you can still see them from the beach. Jenkinson's beach in Point Pleasant has palms on the beach.

Pier Village in Long Branch, too. The Tropicana in AC puts out palms every year. There must be dozens of places.

Frankly I think the palm tress they plant along the coast look stupid and pathetic. They're usually so small and short and spread out too much and I just don't like the look of it. But I have seen them in Point Pleasant Beach and Long Branch.

I much prefer dunes and dune grass to the imported palms.

On some beaches in Florida everyone is from New Jersey, that'll be your only Jersey Shore/Palm Tree experience.

I've never seen them planted as an erosion control measure on a dune or anywhere near a dune. It wouldn't make sense since they could cause more erosion by virtue of the fact that they have to be dug up and brought into a greenhouse every winter. They're typically only planted outside of the public ROW (which the dunes are typically located within) on privately owned or leased land for ornamental purposes by places like Jenkinsons, trying to create an "island" atmosphere. That said, I prefer the beauty of the pitch pines, hudsonia, and dune grasses found in maritime forests in places like Island Beach.

I know. I think you misunderstood, I'm simply saying I like the more natural look of sand dunes than palm trees down the shore. I'd rather see dunes, which serve as a protective measure anyway so are more purposeful, than palm trees in some towns (like Long Branch and PPB). The palm trees are unnatural and die every winter anyway.

I am assuming you're talking about naturally occurring palm trees. To the best of my knowledge there aren't any for the vast majority of the state. If they occur anywhere I would assume it would be the southern tip, but they probably don't look like the ones from the tropics.

Martell's Tiki Bar in Pont Pleasant Beach has them--if you like them red.
