Soon our beaches will be overrun. I caught word of a "secret beach" not too many are aware of...until now.

It may be a bit of a hike down the GSP for those of us in Monmouth county, but 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.
