The Wildwoods boast three of the only five beaches in New Jersey that don't require people to buy beach badges to get onto the sand and into the water. Maybe it's because they have to work so hard to get to the surf.
The beaches here are a half-mile from the boardwalk in many spots, kicking sand in the faces of most other New Jersey beaches. Due to the prevailing ocean currents and the natural topography of the coastline, sand that washes away from other beaches piles up here.
In fact, the walk to the water is so far that Wildwood once seriously entertained a proposal to let a vendor offer camel rides to and from the surf before deciding against it.

Passing of Bill Morey Sr. Cofounder of Morey’s Piers
MOREY, WILLIAM H, 87, of Wildwood, NJ, a renowned builder during the Jersey Shore Doowop motel boom years, owner/operator of the old Ringo bingo hall on the Wildwood boardwalks, and a cofounder of Morey's Surfside Pier, where millions of Delaware Valley youth for decades enjoyed their summers, went to be in the loving arms of the Lord, Wednesday, January 11, 2017. Bill was born at Margaret Mace Hospital in North Wildwood, NJ, on April 19, 1929, and raised in West Wildwood, NJ by his parents, Lewis and Clara Morey. The Morey family birth order was 5 sons: Lewis, Raymond, Wilbert, William, and Charles, and 2 daughters: Yvonne and Esther. He resided in the Wildwoods his entire life, graduated from Wildwood High School in 1948, and married Dolores Peterson Morey in 1951. He was an avid golfer, a member of the Wildwood Golf and Country Club, and scored a hole in one at the age of 80. Family members humorously called him "Commander Whitehead", and friends and colleagues coined the nickname for him, "Silver Fox."

He also has 7 grandchildren: William "Bud", Eric, and Brett Morey, John and Sara Freeman, Drew and Jenna Ankney, 6 great-grandchildren: William "Buddy", Ellasyn, Delaney, Waylon, Joel, and Marshall Morey.
