Romantic Night Climbs at Barnegat Lighthouse

Ever climb so high it feels
like you could touch the moon? It’s a lot like that during the night climbs at
the Barnegat Lighthouse. It’s truly a romantic experience and quite the adventure!
Throughout the next few
months, The Friends of Barnegat Lighthouse State Park will be hosting several night climbs
and nighttime activities (weather permitting). This means you’ll get to climb
217 steps to the top of “Old Barney” and enjoy a panoramic view of Island
Beach, Barnegat Bay, and Long Beach Island.
Built in 1857, the Barnegat Lighthouse stands 172-feet above sea
level. It creates a single beam of light that’s visible for up to 22 nautical
miles.

If you’re planning a
visit, make sure to stay at the Sand Castle
Bed & Breakfast
 and
arrive in time to stroll along the beach and linger among the area’s signature sand dunes. You’ll also want to make use of the inn’s pool and outdoor Jacuzzi where you may soak under the stars. Next day, a chef-prepared gourmet breakfast awaits.

Hope to see you soon,
Nancy Gallimore, Innkeeper
Sand Castle Bed and Breakfast
