Explorer Lens

There are more than 10 lighthouses in New Jersey and the Barnegat Lighthouse is the most famous among them. Build in 1859, this lighthouse is more than 150 years old and is 172 feet above sea level. There are 217 steps to the top of the lighthouse from where you can have a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean, nearby islands and water activities.

Barnegat Lighthouse State Park is situated on the northern tip of Long Beach Island in Ocean County.

There are a lot of activities that can be done here -:

Tickets & Fees
The ticket to enter the lighthouse is $3 for adults.

The state park is easily accessible and has a good connectivity.

There are restaurants and cafes nearby, so finding good food won’t be a problem.

As we have Long Island Beach also nearby so there are a lot of hotels and motels to stay.
But as always I will prefer the homely feeling and comfort of Airbnb.

Now time for some gyan from Explorer Lens
1. If you are interested in photography, do carry a zoom lens also with you as there are some stunning
    views from the top of the lighthouse.
2. There is a lot of parking available so that won’t be a problem
3. There are some beautiful islands nearby so if you own a boat or Jet Ski do bring it along.
4. It will take 4-5 hours to cover the complete state park, right from the lighthouse to the beach, so try
    to come before noon.

Lets have a photowalk of the state park thru the lens of explorer
