“Great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

The beach here is very clean and huge. The walk to the water is very long, so it is best to avoid lugging too much stuff with you. The sand is quite fine and the water stays shallow for quite a distance. Lifeguards seemed very attentive but not too intrusive. Ice cream carts come by every half hour or so, you'll want to have some cash handy. Their prices were very reasonable, especially on a hot day.

“Clean Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Beach was always nicely clean. Tip get to the beach earlier to get a good spot. And bring lots if water and snacks. Long walk back to get something to eat. Also get beach chairs and a beach umbrella.

“Much better than Atlantic City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

It was the middle of summer and ACs water was absolutely freezing. We travelled down to Wildwood and the water was definitely not as cold as in AC. Around 3-4pm the water becomes much warmer.

The only problem with Wildwood is that its about a half mile walk from the boardwalk to the water. Now you are away from the boardwalk, but if you need to get some food or go the bathroom this can be an issue.

As with any beach in NJ during the summer there will be a bunch of high school kids. My brother stepped on some broker glass and cut his foot.

The entertainment for families here is unmatched though. Doesnt matter what time of day it is there is something to do. There are carnival games, roller coasters, kiddie rides, casinos that kids can play in (no money of course) and tons of shops.

“Along Walk to water”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

It's a long walk to the water. If you want to go to the beach go to end of a ride pier and go to the beach from there the walk not as long.

“Best Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Love it for small children. Very Clean and lifeguards are very attentive. The children can walk out without fear of large waves. They can play in the water as it very slowly goes out to the deep. Look forward to the ice cream workers. They have been providing this since I was little and the family enjoys it now too.
