Things To Do

Bayview Harbor is conveniently located halfway between NY Harbor and Cape May, in historic Barnegat Light, NJ on Long Beach Island and is within walking distance of restaurants, attractions, shops, galleries and the Viking Village fishing fleet and shops.

We are accessible to things to do at ocean and bay beaches, public parks including Barnegat Light State Park, and a dog park.

Whether you’re a local looking for a seasonal slip, a boater looking for a vacation at the Jersey Shore, or a transient heading along the NJ coast, Bayview Harbor is your full-service boating center.

Historic Barnegat Light

Barnegat Light was first deeded by the English Crown in 1692, and for hundreds of years, the Borough has grown as a commercial fishing village and a center of recreation and tourism. With its charming and low-key vibe, Barnegat Light stands as a beacon of rest on the Jersey Shore.

Come visit our quiet and immaculate beaches. The ocean beach is accessible from all side streets in Barnegat Light and a tractor-pulled wagon carries beachgoers from 4th to 12th streets to the beach during the summer months.


Lifeguards are on duty from 10 AM to 5PM in season.

For families with young children, visit the life-guarded Bay Beach at 25th Street and Bayview, just up the road from Bayview Harbor.

Public restrooms can be found at Barnegat Lighthouse, at Seabreeze Park and at the public boat ramp at 10th and Bayview Avenue.

Barnegat Lighthouse State Park

The Barnegat Lighthouse, “Old Barney,” is a big part of town and has its own history.

The second tallest lighthouse in the United States, it is 172-feet tall and has 217 steps. It was designed by General George Meade and was commissioned January 1, 1859. On January 1, 2009, the beam was re-lit after being in the dark since 1944.
