“Roam Through the Preserved Wonders of Island Beach State Park” (watch on YOUTUBE, 3 minutes and 18 seconds, all ages)
Island Beach State Park is, in many ways, an island unto itself. The 10-mile stretch of land stands as one of the last undeveloped barrier beaches left along the Northeast coast, serving as a window into what the Jersey Shore looked like hundreds of years ago.
Shaped by storms and tides, Island Beach State Park is a barrier island stretching for 10 miles between the restless Atlantic Ocean and the historic Barnegat Bay. It is maintained by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Parks and Forests Division.
