Bay Head Travel Guide

Bay Head is a unique little seaside spot on the Jersey Shore. Charming and uncrowded, the community here enjoys leafy residential streets, an empty beach much of the time, and quaint little stores and restaurants.

Things to Do in Bay Head

The top attraction in Bay Head is the unspoiled beach. There's no busy boardwalk here, and while you do need a badge to use the beach, the peaceful, uncrowded vibe is certainly worth it. If you're keen to get active, try your hand at paddleboarding on the Twilight Lake, which is ideal for beginners due to its calm waters.

Equally, if you enjoy exploring on two wheels, Bay Head is super bike-friendly and has several designated cycle lanes. Take your bike over to the Bay Head Historical Society Museum and learn about life over the years in this part of the Jersey shore. There is a permanent interesting photographic display showing how things were at the turn of the century. Elsewhere, check out the rest of the town and browse the unique gift shops and clothing stores, then pop your bike in the rack and check out the famous Muellers Bakery, serving up their famous crumb cake since 1890.
