The beaches in Wildwood have been the same since I was a child-safe.

Always safe to go swimming at the Wildwood beach. Always plenty of lifeguards on duty. Plenty of room on the beaches whether you were sun bathing or playing gamers.

Thumbs up. It is a nice beach. It has a boardwalk and water parks. It is a long walk though down to the water.

The Wildwood Beaches are always kept so clean. The sand is so soft on your feet. The ocean normally is very calm and one can walk out further making it conducive for families with youngsters and for seniors who have knee issues. Some of other NJ beaches have a big drop. Looking forward to our next visit to the Wildwood... More

Always went to Wildwood during the summer and always loved it. Now I take my nephews here every summer. It's nostalgic.

Have been to this beach my whole life and love it. It's a must for a family for sure. With so many amusements and the boardwalk it makes for great memories.

The Beach itself had a lot of pollution. Broken glass, wrappers, shoes. I didn't want to go barefoot. There was a fishy, seaweed smell, and it just felt dirty.

This is one of the nicest beaches anywhere! It also has one of the most interesting and entertaining boardwalks in the world. The parking is great, plenty of places to stay, great for all age groups!

We travel with our dogs. Wildwood Beach has a fantastic dog park on the beach! Our two dogs loved it, got to run and play safely while we were on vacation. Fenced area for large dogs, separate fenced area for smaller dogs. Located on north end of town. Water and clean up bags available.

The boardwalk was less than two blocks from our motel. I enjoyed walking the boardwalk and looking in the stores that were open. (We were off season.) The boardwalk had many activities, but most were closed. It appeared that there was plenty to do in season. But the walk in the fresh air was very pleasant.
