Sea Isle City, N.J. Photography Hot Spot Location is excellent for day, night, and milky way photography. You will enjoy it here, no matter which type of photography you decide to do. This area can get crowded during peak summer weekends, but it has a friendly laid back atmosphere versus some other nearby shore towns that are loaded with hotels, restaurants, and bars. Almost every place to stay in this town is a weekly or summer rental. This Inn that we feature in the article, The Colonnade Inn, is one of the few places you can go for a shorter stay, and it is a fabulous place to stay!

When you come to this area, stay at our favorite Victorian Style Hotel, the Colonnade Inn. It is a perfect location for doing milky way photography on the beach. Just a short distance over the border into Avalon, where you will find the pier pictured below to do more milky way photography.
We are going back. Rarely are we ever “not” in the zone. See our so-so images below—better ones to follow. We can’t always be exactly on the money with the Milky Way.
