Love the beach, very clean, and very huge. You don't have to fight for a spot. Also love the Crest, which was voted #1, and North Wildwood too.

I love going to Wildwood Crest Beach! Nice sand, friendly people. Just over all a nice location for those who love the beach and of course, FREE! If you don't bring chairs or umbrellas you can rent on the beach!

Loved the beach, but be prepared for a long walk from the boardwalk to water's edge. Very relaxing week. Boardwalk has many attractions. Lots of life guards. Had a nice dog beach, too. Definitely a good place for family.

Wildwood beach is a great place to go. We were there during the week so the beach wasn't crowded. I found the beach to be clean.

The Wildwood Beaches were the best. The water was warm. You could rent umbrellas and there is even an ice cream man to buy ice cream. The only thing it is a long walk to the beach once you hit the sand. It took us...More

There used to be, even showers, but now you have to change in one of their public restrooms without getting caught. Things have gone down hill in Wildwood!
