Barnegat Light is situated on the northern tip of Long Beach Island. We are a quaint, family oriented seashore town. We have something to offer to everyone. The Barnegat Lighthouse State Park is a popular destination for climbing the lighthouse, picnicking and fishing. We offer beautiful spacious beaches, excellent surf fishing, bay fishing and crabbing. We offer several recreation areas, including tennis courts, a skate park, dog park and basketball court.
There are several options for those who like to go fishing or boating. Party boats go out daily for deep sea fishing, charter boats are available for small groups to hire, and for those who like to head out on their own in the bay we have boat liveries that do daily rentals.
There is a museum that was formerly a one room schoolhouse that has many items on display including the original lens from the Lighthouse. There are several restaurants and ice cream parlors, as well as antique and gift shops. Viking Village is one of the largest working commercial fishing docks in New Jersey.
For those who would like to extend your visit to more than a day, there is a variety of accommodations in Barnegat Light . There are motels, Bed & Breakfasts or house rentals.
So, whether Barnegat Light is your permanent home, your favorite vacation destination or you’re a first time visitor we hope you find our site helpful and informative.
