I visited this beach every year as a child and I'm taking my kids there. It's a long walk from the start of the sand to the actual water - I've always found that very strange, but then I saw that the high tide brings the water in very far so it has to be that wide for a reason... More

I love wildwood, it's further than the rest of the beaches from my house(I live right next to Philadelphia) but it's worth the trip! Always have a good time there, only thing is the really long walk to the ocean! LOL it's a nice little workout walking down there! Parking is a bit expensive but its an amazing beach and... More

Long walk to get to the beach but once there very relaxing. I am not a beach person but for the times I do go, I enjoy just sitting and reading a good book.

I have been going to Wildwood for 20+ yrs. Every year there is always something new. The beach is fantastic and there is plenty to do with the kids there is hardly any downtime.

We enjoyed the bracing waters of the Atlantic. The beach was nice and clean. There was an area separated out for pets on a leash. Close to the Boardwalk and plenty of restaurants.

A day at the beach is great if you have enough stamina to make it to the ocean. Only able to do it once, and got ride for the trip back. Lots to do and able to get food on the beach. Chair and umbrella rental a must have. Lots of room to spread out. Bring the kids to carry... More

Very clean and well maintained beach. Very nice that there are wade pools so you don't have to go all theway to the ocean to cool off. Since the beach is so wide they have a beach taxi to take you back and forth from the boardwalk to your spot on the beach, very reasonable price.
