Find a treasure at the market.
A charming, eclectic community at the northern most point of the Island where the ocean meets the bay. A historical town where Scandinavian fishing families settled; building a commercial fishing business that thrives today supplying our local restaurants, markets plus shipping to New York, Philadelphia and overseas. Barnegat Lighthouse State Park invites you to climb to the top of the lighthouse, walk the nature trail, picnic and fish from the rocks or along the handicapped-friendly jetty walkway. There are boat rentals, charters, half day fishing trips and sunset cruises. You may bring your own boat & put it in the bay at the 10th Street ramp. You can launch a kayak & paddleboard from the W. 25th St bay beach with play area. The wide beaches insure there is plenty of room to lay your towels and toss a Frisbee without disturbing anyone. The beaches are seasonally lifeguarded. Walk or bike to shops, ice cream, tennis, dining, concerts, craft fairs and museums. Don’t forget the award winning diner food at Mustache Bills. If you enjoy preparing your own seafood, but missed catching it; stop at Viking Village for fresh off the boats catches at Cassidy’s Fish Market then pick up your corn at Franks Produce. It’s White’s Market for truly prime meats, deli and groceries. Buyers opt for the small village, peaceful living here so close to nature. Vacation rentals range from bed & breakfast accommodations, cottages & duplexes to large 4-5 bedroom contemporaries. Let one of our agents expand on this for you.
