Loch Arbour is a village in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the village population was 280.

Loch Arbour was formed as a Village by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 23, 1957, from portions of Ocean Township, based on the results of a referendum held that same day.[6]

While there are three other municipalities that retain the Village type of government (Ridgefield Park, Ridgewood and South Orange), Loch Arbour is the only municipality in the State of New Jersey that still uses the village form of government.[7]

In 1997, Loch Arbour voters rejected a ballot proposal that would have it merge back into Ocean Township by an 88-69 margin, and proposals to merge with Allenhurst or Interlaken failed by a nearly 10-1 margin.[8]
