As many here state and live nearby as myself I must agree with them! The new causeway took several years to build but will last a long time to help usher in the beach, boat and fun seekers!

Somers Point Harbor Cova Marina is a good starting point for a lot of those activities. There are many nice restaurants in town and places to walk like Kennedy Park. Do not miss the new causeway.

The new causeway is THE new attraction in the area. A full pedestrian walkway allows you to take in the view from the Atlantic ocean inlet on up into the river. 2.5 miles each way or park in the middle and go as far as you want. Fresh air and exercise with a view!!

This is probably the Premier location in Atlantic County for boatin, fishing, cruising and having a blast. Novices should stick to channels that are marked and pay attention to your depth finder. Several nice restaurants and bars offer free dockage to patrons.

Great Egg Bay borders Margate, Longport Ocean City Somers Point Egg Harbor TOWNSHIP AND Upper township in Southern NJ. If you want Southern Hospitality in a Yankee state y'all should try a weekend of boating between some of these fine establishments; Lambertis in Margate Baia, Philip Chin, Clancy' Crabby Jacks And more in Somers Point, plus Tuckahoe Inn in Upper...
