The stretch of the beach down by Montego Bay Resort is just big enough that you can spread out , but not a half a mile to the water. Perfection!!!

Nice clean beach but no ball playing and no alcohol. Alcohol rule is not enforced, just use common sense. The beach is really wide and you can wade in the water pretty far before it gets deep.I'd go back...Give it a try....

Early in morning you can walk on the beach walk (plenty of runners, walkers, etc) but better down on the actual beach. If you're up early enough you can spot dolphins playing in the inlet!

Parking can be a bit annoying but the beach is much shorter then the wildwood beach. Also you do not need beach tags

One of NJ's only free ocean beach. Kept immaculately clean and the host of several athletic events in addition to the Tri the Wildwoods Triathlon. A LOT of beach! Probably 200 yards of sand from the Boardwalk to the water. Morey's Pier has rides, amusements...More

I would agree that most are across the street. You can go to the wildwoodsnj website and view the map of many of the hotels as well as the visitors guide which could help. Entering North Wildwood and oceanfront, though, only... More

Last year my family and I stayed in Wildwood closer to the Convention Center. We went with my mom and young children and found the beach way too long of a walk. This year we want to stay in North Wildwood but we want to be where the beach is narrower. At what street does the beach get narrower? I know the last pier is at 25th. How is it around 22nd ave?

There is a motel on 18th called the Sahara which is very nice and newly remodeled. It is on the boardwalk and had wood planks the beach. Very nice location
I have only been to Wildwood once and it was almost 20 years ago. I am looking for a rental in North Wildwood to stay with family and would like to stay a little way from the amusement piers but still be able to easily access the boardwalk. Our children are high school/college-aged and there is also a 10 year-old. I have found some beautiful places to rent that are in the last couple of streets in North Wildwood, on the Hereford Inlet but am not sure if the beach this far down is as nice and sandy as it is a little further down. My husband and my boys have always liked to play marathon wiffle ball games on the beach so it would be nice to have room to play behind the sunbathers. Any recommendations about the area would be helpful. We stayed in the south end of Ocean City a couple of summers ago and loved the peace and quiet. The boardwalk in Ocean City was lovely but the rides were a little too tame for the kids.
