I have been going to wildwood beaches my whole life. (29 years to be exact). As someone who currently lives at the beach, I will drive the hour and change down to wildwood any day, as opposed to mine, to go their beaches. They are clean, wide, and free. I personally prefer to go to Wildwood Crest as apposed to... More

There are really only three negatives to the Wildwood beach -- the sand is *really hot* in the summer; there are jellyfish from about mid-August through September; and the walk from the Boardwalk to the ocean is really long. That said -- the positives include that the beach is free; that the sand is powdery and soft; the sand is... More

Not exceptionally clean but Wildwood area has definitely improved over the past 5 years. Wood path down to the water is a great idea!

It is our first time my family and I went there and we had so much fun. The water is clean and miles of fine sand. My 15 month old daughter had fun playing in the sand and it was her first time getting sand under her feet, happy memories

Open, wide, and free beach access. You can walk out into the water as much as 100 feet in certain places and still be in water below your head. Waves roll in more than crash, although they can be higher and stronger before and after storms. Great boogie boarding. Kids can have great fun by the waters edge since the... More

Clean and well-tended to. Not too crowded. The only downside is it's a long walk to get from the boardwalk to the water...you can't even hear the ocean from the boardwalk.

We love the Wildwood beach and it's 1 of 2 free ones at the Jersey shore! It's well-patrolled by lifeguards as well.

Loooooooong walk to the water!!! I passed skeletal remains of families who never made it to the water! Once there, you can really spread out on a spacious clean beach. Wildwood has removed the teeth from the local sharks so you can swim without worry. The jellyfish and crabs and lobsters all sing to you as you frolic in the... More
