Brought our kids to go see the sunken ship, look for CM diamonds on the diamond beach and shop on the gift shops. A great experience for anyone! Will definitely be back to NJ's point!

This park has a bit ofeverything... The lighthouse, a WWII bunker, a small museum, walking trails, lookout decks, and birds galore. It is anawesome way to spend time exploring the outdoors, and is family friendly.

We were there only a few hours but enjoyed our visit. We were not with kids, but it would be a great place for kids of all ages.

We visited the lighthouse and beach one evening. Very nice visit. On the beach is a WW II bunker. That was interesting to check out. While walking along the beach we observed several dolphins not far from the shore. Nice visit.

This never gets old. While we do not climb the lighthouse every time, we love the beach here, the museum and the opportunity to walk and bird watch (though we are not bird watchers). We love to go when it is butterfly season.

Great all around! Beach, lighthouse, museum. Restrooms could use a little bit of updating but hey, it's free! You can picnic there and then take nice long walk on beach. We visit numerous times a year.
