As the name suggests, the Borough of Ocean Gate, NJ sits on the Central New Jersey shoreline at the intersection of the Barnegat Bay and the Toms River. The tiny beach town of just over two thousand people started out as a stop on the Pennsylvania Railroad Line. Visitors built cottages at the famed Good Luck Point, a secluded natural space of nearly three million acres for birds, wildlife, and vast vegetation.
In 1918 a portion of Berkeley Township was sectioned off to create Ocean Gate that included a combination of summer cottages, family dwellings, and marinas to capitalize on the location’s advantageous position at the intersection of the railroad and summer vacation spot. Locals and tourists from Philadelphia and other areas to enjoy Ocean Gate’s public but quiet beach and boardwalk that curves along the Toms River and was designed with vacationing families in mind.
Unfortunately, much like the rest of the region, Ocean Gate, NJ was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Official estimates state that over half of the beach, boardwalk, and homes were destroyed. In the intervening years, the town has struggled but has, by and large, succeeded to rebuild. New homes near the water were placed on stilts, dunes were built up on the beach to combat erosion and flooding, and business returned to normal.
Today the small town offers a beautiful family retreat with plenty of outdoor activities, quaint locally operated food, drink, and shopping storefronts. Visitors to the area are just a few minutes away from the larger, carnival-style family boardwalk at Seaside Heights and other popular beaches and amenities such as Lavalette and Point Pleasant Beach.
