Night Climbs Offer Unique View of LBI

Jul 12, 2019

Barnegat Light: For people wanting a panoramic view of Long Beach Island, there’s no better place than the top of Barnegat Lighthouse. And on Saturday, July 13, the Friends of the Barnegat Lighthouse organization host a night climb from 7 to 9 o’clock. The event is free, but donations to the organization are appreciated.

The friends suggest participants arrive early, since a limited number of people can go up at the same time. The night climb ends promptly at 9. The lighthouse is 172 feet high and contains 217 steps.

“The sunsets are magnificent,” said friends past president Charlotte Banks. “People will see the Island in a whole new way.”

The rest of the night climb schedule is all Saturdays at the same time – Aug. 17, Sept. 14, Oct. 12 and Oct. 26.

For more information, call the park office at 609-494-2016 or visit friendsof barnegatlighthouse.org. E.E.
