A group of stingrays entered the shallow inlet and now graciously swim there (see pictures) waiting for a tide in order to go back into the ocean. Spotted a small sand shark there as well. Simply amazing.

I love Northwood I have bad knees and can't do the walk to the beach any more but in Northwood it is short I can do it I just wish they would have more weekly specials(Sunday- friday).👍

Sonya and I always have to stop here when we are in the area. Just the perfect Jersey beach. Not to crowded this time of year but watch out mid season when it can be packed!

For those that seek the “Perfect” waves...26th ave still has a small pipe. 18th ave has a bizarre transition. “Rocks” in Cape May you can surf with old heads. 12th ave is not the same.

Clean beach, somewhat crowded in the summer, but nice fine sand. Lifeguards on duty. Boardwalk and amenities nearby. Can rent umbrellas and beach chairs

We had a great morning at the beach in North Wildwood. It was clean and safe. We got there early and parked in lot on 15th street. Beach is handicap accessible.

I come here every summer as much as possible. I’ve been coming here since I was a baby (35 years). It is family oriented, free and clean beach, fun boardwalk, and great restaurants. The boardwalk is patrolled by police regularly. The beaches have excellent lifeguards....More

This is our favorite beach in the area! Not too far to walk. Plenty of parking if you get there early.
