We visited the beach again this summer. As always, it was clean and well kept. If you go, remember to bring your beach umbrella, boogie board and a little $$ to buy some ice cream from one of the vendors walking up & down the beach.

So much to do and enjoy in North Wildwood. A great community, the beach is free and there is even a surfing area between 2nd and 3rd.

Ok really after over 30 years of travel over the world. There's no place like The Wildwoods. The best boardwalk in the world and people are great.

The weather was hot, the sun high and the beach and water delightful! This latest trip to the North Wildwood beach was as good As usual, great! My favorite beach is 7th St. Due to the restrooms there. Showers are now at most beaches to desand. Nice addition!

It's a long walk out to the beach. But once you get there it's beautiful and perfect. Lifeguards are there from 9- 530. Once 530 comes around they make sure everyone gets out of the water. Once they leave your allowed to get back in at your own discretion. No dogs allowed on the beach. We always went later in... More

After paying $2.00 an hour to park, find the beach to be small. People on top of each other. too crammed. Beach was clean and ocean beautiful. If you like a little more space I suggest you move more towards the Wildwood area. A longer walk to the ocean but worth it.

Wildwood is definitely a family beach. Yes in June the graduating seniors come but from what I see there are no issues. Life guards are always on duty and patrols are on the beach with 4 wheelers.

How can you go wrong with a Wildwood beach? It's free and there is plenty of sand for everyone as the beaches are very long. The boardwalk is conveniently located and has plenty of things to see and do.
