Secret Beach At The Jersey Shore
With our beaches weeks away from being overrun, I caught word of a “secret beach” not too many in Monmouth and Ocean counties are aware of…until now.It may be a bit of a hike down the GSP for those of us in Monmouth county. It’s a quick trip for Ocean county residents. Have you heard of High Bar Harbor?
High Bar Harbor is a neighborhood located in the northwestern-most portion of Long Beach Township on LBI. But tucked behind the Barnegat Lighthouse, there’s a stretch of sand on Long Beach Island that very few are aware of. Guess the secret’s out.
To get there: Take Long Beach Boulevard north into the town of Barnegat Light, and turn left on 20th St., also known as Auburn Road. Go a third of a mile, then bear right at the Y-shaped intersection onto Sunset Boulevard. Take it to the end. You’ll see a footpath to the beach.
