Wolfe’s Pond Beach is even less crowded than South Beach or Midland Beach, even during the beach season. Lifeguards are on duty daily during the beach season from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Swimming is allowed only when lifeguards are on duty and prohibited in the closed section, indicated by a sign or red flag.

Wolfe's Pond Beach by Wuse1007

Sunbathing and swimming in summer but still a pleasant destination for strolling along the beach during the off-season. The inter-tidal zone (the area where the high tide and low tide marks) supports a variety of seaweed, a source of food for various birds inhabiting the area. Marine life existing in the tidal zone includes the soft shell clam, blue mussel, blue crab, and mud snail. From October to May, Wolfe’s Pond Beach is popular for surf fishing in the bay while nearby Wolfe Pond offers opportunities for year round freshwater fishing
