About Bay Head

Since its incorporation in the 1880’s, Bay Head remains a premier location for visitors to relax in a quaint country village by the sea. Just 70 miles South of New York City and 65 miles East of Philadelphia, Bay Head offers many unique shops and bed & breakfast inns. Architecture buffs will enjoy marveling at the many large, well kept Victorian homes that dot the tree-lined streets of this shore town.

Bay Head remains a small, quiet community ~ there are no public changing rooms and food & beverages are not allowed on the beach. However, visitors may rent kayaks, bikes and surfboards right in town.

While the town of Bay Head maintains a non-commercial boardwalk, visitors can take advantage of being only one mile south of Pt. Pleasant, which offers many amusements as well as restaurants and additional shoppingBarnegat Bay, just to the west of Bay Head, offers boating, fishing and water-skiing.

for you.
