We were pleasantly surprised that wildwood only changed for the better in those years. It is so fun for the kids and adults alike. The beach is super far from the boardwalk but it's not as bad as it looks. They have mini boardwalks on the sand that go halfway out and then the sand is a packed down sand... More

This is the first beach I have gone swimming in since last summer. It was great. It was clean and the waves were so much fun. They allow the use of boogie boards which made me feel like a kid again!!! The lifeguards were cautious and removed swimmers where they noted riptide formations. They also provide a beach taxi for...

Just returned from a week long vacation in Wildwood Crest where we were less than pleased with the overall beach condition. Our main complaint was the trash that littered the beach. I've lived in Jersey my whole life and have experienced many of the beautiful beaches NJ has to offer, sad to say this isn't one of them. My opinion,... More

Such an amazing beach, soft sands. Awesome time refreshing beach life. The beach has like half a mile of sand before you reach the water. Theres tiny clams/shells that hide in the waves, pur daughter loved it.

It's worth the walk to the water. The beach is kept clean. Walked with the kids each morning to find shells & went swimming in the ocean.

The beach was clean. It was a good time! I will definitely visit Wildwood beach again with my kids. The boardwalk was clean. The parking was cheap. All in all a great place to visit.

First time visiting Wildwood, NJ. The only disappointing thing about the trip is that we didn't stay longer. The broad walk is awesome very old schooly feel to it, lots to do and see all be it a little over priced. Especially the piers. We were a little disappointed with the beach in central wildwood. It's so wide takes forever... More
