An Island Vacation on the Ocean and Bay!
Greetings from Barnegat Light, NJ!
Barnegat Light, New Jersey, is on Long Beach Islands north end - the quiet side - where families return year after year for their summer vacation. Beach dunes - a well-maintained dune system between the ocean and it's ocean front houses - has protected this town from the recent storms. Unchanged for so many years, the first time visitor can feel the spell of this Jersey shore gem. Be inspired to find and rent your own summer place on Barnegat Light and begin your own Jersey shore vacation tradition.
On the northernmost tip of Long Beach Island, Barnegat Light homeowners are proud of their famous lighthouse, Old Barney, which is a beacon to boats and a destination for tourists with its museum and sandy trails. Vacationers who make the climb up the lighthouse's narrow staircase are rewarded with a spectacular view of all the beach towns of Long Beach Island and an endless water view of the ocean and the bay.
Barnegat Light offers a classic Jersey shore vacation experience of ocean and bay explorations. Children wade and search for sea creatures on Barnegat's rocky jetties and bay. The beach is a wild and natural backyard to beautiful historic beach houses, some for rent.
Many vacationers to Barnegat Light never leave this end of the island it's time to go home. Everything is here : a Farmers Market, shopping village, home-grown restaurants, and churches. They are all a short walk or bicycle ride away. It seems everyone here rides a bike. While there is a bicycle and video rental shop in Barnegat Light and good seafood restaurants, mother nature provides almost all the entertainment for this island vacation.
