The lighthouse is a must see, the view from up top is beautiful. There is a walking trail nearby and you can walk along the beach wall. If All the light houses we have visited in Jersey this was our favorite.

We walked all 216 steps to the top! Great view! Enjoyed a walk along the water. There were lots of schoolkids there on field trips. It was well worth the trip.

My boyfriend lives on Long Beach Island, so we frequent Barnegat Lighthouse State Park. During the off-season, the lighthouse is free to climb, but I believe it is only open weekends until late noon. We like to walk the jetties to the end, then walk...More
