The distance between the beach and the boardwalk seems a little intimidating, so I'll drop a hint: enter the beach near the northernmost point of the boardwalk. There will be much less walking to do. I don't care if you spend only a half hour...More

My favorite beach!!!! They have lifeguards on duty during the day. And then you have the food , games and rides at night on the boardwalk. My best childhood memories are from Wildwood!

Our hotel was overpriced for accommodations. The bathroom in the room was so small you couldn't sit right. The beach seems to grow every year. It was not navigated well at all by the elderly

There is nothing like a walk along Wildwood Beach at sunrise. Just gorgeous! The beaches are well maintained. You never know what you might see, dolphins playing close to shore for example.

Went to this beach for over 50 years.. it's a hike!!!! They have pathways for not having to walk on the sand but pulling all your gear is a workout. I say they should invest in a sand tram like the one one the boardwalk....More

Beaches in Wildwood, Wildwood Crest and North Wildwood are the nicest beaches at the Jersey Shore. They are very clean. They are wide so your not sitting on top of each other. They're free! No beach tags to buy.

Pretty good beach. Long walk to beach but overall it's nice. Wildwood Crest beach is nicer, but Wildwood works.

Will be taking grandkids to Wildwood Crest at the end of June. My wife and I are partially handicapped with bad backs and knees. Does anyone know the cost to rent beach umbrellas and chairs? It would be difficult for us to carry very much to the beach. Thank you!

Sorry I don't know about dogs on the boardwalk. I would suggest contacting the city to find out. They might be allowed on the boardwalk if on a leash? As far as hours in the enclosed dog park we did not see any signs... More
