Island Beach State Park
The New Jersey Park service hopes you will enjoy the many activities of
this barrier Island--including swimming, hiking and fishing among others.
Island Beach State Park is situated on a narrow barrier island that
stretches for 9.5 miles between the Atlantic Ocean and Barnegat Bay. Sand dunes
that offer habitat to maritime plants and diverse wildlife extend from the
entrance of the park at Seaside Park to the tip of the island at Barnegat Inlet.
Barnegat Lighthouse can be seen across the inlet from the southernmost point of
Island Beach. Park visitors can enjoy the 3,00 acres of sandy beaches, maritime
forest, tidal marshes and dunes.
