Island Beach State Park is a barrier island that preserves and protects the shoreline and habitats near the shore. But it's also a great place for swimming, fishing, walking, and experiencing nature!
There are ten miles of beautiful ocean-side beaches, as well as an amazing shoreline all along the Barnegat Bay area. There are dense forests, rolling sand dunes, and marshes. Island Beach is home to more than 400 plant species as well as wildlife such as foxes and ospreys!
