The Friends of Barnegat Lighthouse State Park in New Jersey know this… they’ll be hosting a Full Moon Night Climb on Monday, July 22nd from 7 to 9 pm (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 make use of our Life’s a Beach Kit. Hit the beach, in style, by day, then climb up above the waves at night.
See you soon!
