Things to do

Seaside Heights’ family favorite

Breakwater Beach Waterpark is one of Seaside Heights’ top family attractions. The outdoor pools and slides are meticulously designed for swimmers of all ages and abilities, from nervous toddlers to daredevil teens. The wave pool emulates the powerful surge of the ocean, the aqua drop features spine-tingling freefalls, and the 6-lane racing slide introduces an element of friendly competition to see who can reach the bottom first. Relaxing hot-tub springs offer an alternative to the adrenaline thrills of the water splashes. The park opens seasonally from May to September; hours of operation vary.


Endless summer in Seaside Heights

Thanks to its benevolent climate, the beach season on the Barnegat Peninsula kicks off around March and stretches to October. Temperatures regularly reach the mid-80s from June through August, when demand for Seaside Heights vacation rentals with a pool also peaks. The cooling ocean breezes help to control humidity at the height of summer, while typically mild winters bring opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of the region away from the crowds.
