“disappointed”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

We are faithful Ocean City beachgoers. Went to Wildwood for Beach Blast. Beach cannot compare to OC. Sand is packed hard and far away from boardwak/hotel.

“Looong walk”
Reviewed June 29, 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”
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”
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.
