Wanderland on the Bay is an outdoor waterside event space with a small private beach, bar and a deck on Sandy Hook Bay located in Highlands, NJ (just a 40 minute ferry and one hour car ride away from downtown Manhattan).
Our space features views of both historic Sandy Hook, New York City and the Verrazano Bridge. We're located in the heart of an old pirate stomping ground. The setting is quaint and inviting with the sounds of the water lapping against the docks, sailboats moored awaiting their next adventure out to sea, birds of all kinds gently circling up above and the winds of the Atlantic bringing forth the essence of salt air scents that remind us of our proximity to the ocean.
Highlands, which was founded in 1900, is no stranger to history.
Giovanni da Verrazzano explored the area in 1525. Even by the 20th Century, many immigrants saw the hills of the Highlands of Navesink which were almost 300 feet above sea level, as they sailed into New York seeking a free life in a new world.
Wanderland by the Bay strives to bring an alternative event experience to the standard banquet hall type space that so many of us are familiar, yet tired with.
We hope you to hear from you soon!
