“Looong walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Nice sand, doesn't feel overcrowded, but OOHHHH that walk! What a hike from the boardwalk to the shore. Make sure you pack all that you'll need, because you won't want to have to run back to your hotel for anything! Nice that it's free, though.

“Best of the Jersey Shore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Wildwood offers everything I enjoy in a beach. It is relatively clean with bathroom facilities and places to wash off sand. The umbrellas and chairs for rent make for a very comfortable afternoon of relaxation. The lifeguards are attentive. The boardwalk has several piers with adrenaline pumping rides and the usual rip-off games. The stores are fully stocked with all the desired tacky souvenirs. Runners and bicyclists abound in the early morning hours. It's a great The police presence is noticeable and the area seems reasonably safe. And it's free.

“Huge, clean beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

The ocean must be a mile away from the boardwalk. This is not a bad thing. On the contrary it is such a wide area that you never feel as though you are sitting on top of strangers. There is ample room to spread out. The sand is clean as is the water. We were there this past week end and I was surprise at the warmth of the water temperature, usually this early in the summer it is still rather cold. Waves were not rough, though strong enough togive children on boogie boards a thrill. Definately one of the best beaches in Jersey.

“Dirty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Wildwood Beach was very dirty! We were to this beach for the first time this weekend to play in the Beach Blast. We couldn't walk five feet without finding garbage of some sort. For it being a beach that hosts soccer tournaments and concerts they really don't care about eye appeal. Broken glass, rusty nails, and garbage that should not be found on a beach.
