Wildwood’s beaches are some of Jersey’s best. Sandwiched between a classic American boardwalk and the seemingly endless Atlantic Ocean, these white-sand beaches are impeccably clean and rarely overcrowded. There are five miles of beaches in Wildwood, which regularly accommodate fun events from volleyball tournaments to fireworks on the beach. Best of all, access to the beaches is free, and beach tags are not required. Wildwood’s beaches are lifeguard-protected from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Lifeguard hours vary based on the beach, but generally, lifeguards are stationed from 10 a.m. to 5 or 5:30 p.m.
