Go to the top. Do it. Climb feels like you're in a medieval castle. Though the viewing platform is a little scary--the view is spectacular. Then walk out towards the end of the long rock jetty. Lots of shells and little creatures on the right...More

Magestic lighthouse on end of Long Beach Island. Walk along the bay, swim, fish, hike on the rocks, climb up to the top of the lighthouse for a magestic panoramic view!

Sorry, I just saw your question, I would have to say I doubt it would be open as it is a state holiday. Though you can likely walk through the park.
