New Island Emerges off New Jersey Coast

Hazard to Navigation, Nesting Ground, or Boaters Day Beach?

Over the past five years, sand has naturally collected, off the coast of New Jersey, resulting in a new, 40-hectare, island, “Horsehoe Island".
The site reformed many times due to weather, the tide, and other natural factors, but in 2018, an emergent swash platform shoal formed and remained intact through several tide cycles and a recent nor'easter.
In April, the New Jersey Department of Fish and Wildlife and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced the area, which is off the coast of Little Beach Island, will be closed between March 1 and September 30, for the next five years.
