My favorite vacation spot in NJ! The beaches are wide and the sand is really nice. Not only are the beaches beautiful, but they are free.

The beach is beautiful BUT..... That walk is a killer. Not recommended for seniors. Especially when it's hot. If you have to go to the bathroom they have Porta potty's. Use at your own risk. They are so nasty! It gets crowded and I felt...More

Wildwood Crest beach was family and couples. Great place to relax and soak up the sun. No rowdy crowds.

Always very clean. We go all summer long and never have a bad experience. The kids love watching the dolphins in the distance and playing in the miles of sand

We are not big on going to the beach, but we had a great time none the less. The weather was amazing we got lucky. The beach was relatively clean. It could be a lot cleaner.

Will be taking grandkids to Wildwood Crest at the end of June. My wife and I are partially handicapped with bad backs and knees. Does anyone know the cost to rent beach umbrellas and chairs? It would be difficult for us to carry very much to the beach. Thank you!
