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

We have been going here for over 50 yrs and have instilled the love of this area to our children.. the world's prettiest beaches with plenty of room for sunning and playing in the sand.

I will say that the sand is soft and comfortable, however, it is tough to get to the water because the beach is so wide. I understand why people pay for beach taxis, so they are not exhausted by the time they reach the water. Beach was super crowded and unfortunately not so clean. Jersey beaches are not my favorites.... More

One of my favorite stretches of sand on the Jersey shore. The only down side is there is almost too much beach! But it means Wildwood survives the big storms...so that little extra walk means it will still be here for years t come. And the beaches are FREE!

Beach is beautiful! Loved all the life guards felt very safe. Beach is very clean, only downfall was the long walk from where we stayed.

This was our first time at Wildwood. We took our 15 month old grandson. The beach was very clean and I liked the fact that they had lifeguards on duty. There was plenty of room for people. The down side was its a LONG walk from the boardwalk to the water. So if you are taking a lot of stuff... More

The beach is set back rather far from the boardwalk. It's interesting because you do feel rather removed from the chaos of the boardwalk. If you don't like walking far out on the sand, you may not like this but if you don't mind a ten minute walk on the sand, it's lovely. The beach is clean and the sand... More

Beach was clean and spacious. There were Life Guards on duty and it was most relaxing. We had a great beach day!
