“At the end of the road”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Barnegat Lighthouse State Park is well worth the long drive through Long Beach Island from Beach Haven. I enjoy viewing lighhouses along the Atlantic Ocean, and this one is a gem with an interesting staircase to the top and a small museum on the first floor. The park includes walking paths along the ocean, and provides a popular fishing spot for locals. There are small cafes and a coffee shop within a few miles of the park.

Come get a feel of history from ground level or from the top of the lighthouse.

“Love at dawn”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Wake up early, walk to the water and enjoy the sunrise with someone special. Stopping for bagels, coffee and orange juice beforehand recommended but not necessary.

“Worth the climb”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

The hours are limited so be sure to go morning or mid-day if you want to climb to the top. Its also a great place to watch the sunset but be sure to wear bug spray
