Once you get to the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse, take the trail (path) that goes around the lighthouse and behind it. You will find a nice path which ends at the sea wall and there are several wooden benches that you can sit on to enjoy the sunrises and/or sunsets!
The sun comes up over the Atlantic Ocean and it sets on the west side of the island and it's really pretty to stand here and see it. Not only that...there are NO crowds here and most of the time hubby and I have the beach all to ourselves!
If you are heading down to Wildwood, I highly suggest that you take time one evening to go stand on the beach right behind the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse and try to catch one of the beautiful sunsets or sunrises! Enjoy!
