“Too long a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Free beaches. Good waves at this end of beach. But way too long a walk. They should have shuttles. North Wildwood has pay for Taxi's. Beaches are in better shape than and more protected than some Jersey beaches.

“Good to swim”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I rate this beach according to NJ standards only, so I can say it’s a pleasant place to spend time for free and, if you bring your own food and drinks, you won’t even notice you’ve been out when you check your wallet. The beach is very wide and the sands and water are beautiful…of course, if it’s not one of those very croudy days. People tend to leave the place dirty from time to time, but, as an overall opinion, I like going there often.

“Nice clean beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Beach was clean and family friendly. A bit rough in the water, but still fun. Guards on duty, and not really crowded.

“The biggest beach I've ever seen.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I remember thinking this beach was gigantic as a little kid in the early 80s. As time goes by, usually things look smaller, but this beach seems to continually grow.

The hike is not bad if you're prepared. Regular strollers will struggle big time on that expanse of sand.
