About
This beach has clean, expansive shores that stretch for five miles across the shores of Wildwood. Here, you can go surfing, boogie boarding, kayaking, and even dolphin or whale watching when the season is right. Get on a dolphin or whale-watching tour of Cape May for the best chance of spotting them. The best part? The beach is completely free to enter, unlike many other New Jersey beaches. You can also check out Wildwood's award-winning boardwalk, enjoy the thrilling amusement parks at Morey’s Piers, or get drenched at the high-octane Splash Zone Water Park. – Tripadvisor

Wildwood is a great place to vacation. The beach is huge and free. The boardwalk has great rides, a water park , good food and even an aquarium. Gary Dominicus

Ocean swimming is horrible. The lifeguards harass all the time. No one is allowed beyond waist deep water and must be within about 30 meters of the tower. Fine if everyone is a non-swimmer (in that case you should not be at the beach), but anyone with solid open water swimming skills will hate this. The lifeguards are literally blowing their whistles every minute. If you are a swimmer wanting to enjoy the ocean do not go to Wildwood.

Apparently all the restaurants in the area have bucked the normal business trend to allow point of sale payment transactions by credit card by charging a fee of typically 3.5% added to the restaurant total bill. Cash is accepted and it is unknown if a check is accepted. The consumer reaction appears to be to use the credit card and pay the fee, although I heard some grousing to the effect that the fee would be deducted from the tip, again bucking the normal American custom for the restaurant customer to pay the restaurant service worker’s compensation. Not all business owners are charged a merchant service fee of 3.5% so this will be a bonus to some as merchant service fees are negotiable and few approach 3.5%. The argument in favor is the restaurant is accepting this form of payment as a convenience to the consumer with the cost to be born by the customer. On the other hand most businesses price all their overhead expenses into cost of goods sold. Restaurant pricing is not transparent so it is unknown if the price reflects a reduction in the meal price due to the added fee directly charged to the customer. Most businesses accept credit card payment without a fee, unless it is a high price transaction, so this seemed worthy of comment. So bring cash or perhaps a check? Or be prepared to pay 3.5% extra for your meal in the Wildwoods. What do you think?

A clean, wide beach great for families. It is a bit of a walk from the boardwalk. No cost to use the beach. Would not hesitate to visit this beach again.

This beach was beautiful. I loved the soft sand and how clean it was. The waves were perfect and I had access to the beach right next to my hotel. It was great.

Plenty to do, great places to eat, plenty of room to spread out on the beach, the famous boardwalk, and Morey's Piers. Just all around a good place to go. We go several times a year.

The beach is very clean, and if you have 4-wheel drive, you can park on Baker Street for $10. Well worth it. You can park there and walk to the boardwalk too.
