Iconic Barnegat Bay
Barnegat Bay is an iconic part of The Jersey Shore for beach goers, boaters and fishermen alike. Barnegat Bay contributes an estimated $3.5 billion per year to the economy of the state. And New Jersey is a great economic option for visitors this summer with more than 91 million people living within a four-hour drive.
It is essentially a long estuary formed by Barnegat Peninsula, a long barrier peninsula, as well as by the north end of Long Beach Island. The bay is fed by several small rivers, including the Toms River and Metedeconk River, which empty into the bay through small estuaries along its inner shore. The communities of Toms River, Silverton, and Forked River sit along the river estuaries on the bay.
The bay is entered from the ocean through the Barnegat Inlet, along which sits the Barnegat Lighthouse. The bay is part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, entered on its north end by the Point Pleasant Canal and connecting on the south end with Little Egg Harbor via the small Manahawkin Bay. In a broader sense, the bay is sometimes considered to stretch to the south end of Long Beach Island and to include Little Egg Harbor.
