Vacationers looking for a break from the sand or the surf can spend a day doing other fun things. Travel to the north end of the island and sight-see Barnegat Lighthouse State Park or shop Viking Village. In Beach Haven to the South, one can take their little ones to the Fantasy Island Amusement and Water Parks, experience the Black Pearl Pirate Excursion, or visit the Museum of NJ Maritime History.
In the evening, one can quietly wind down and relax on the outdoor balconies listening to the waves of the ocean crash against the surf, or enjoy many of the island's nightlife spots, including Joe Pop's (walking distance), Terrace Tavern and Nardi's Tavern & Grille.
