Not too overwhelming for my 4 and 5 year old. The dog beach is awesome! Had some trash here and there but not too bad. Beach was combed everyday and mostly clean

Love the beach, very clean, and very huge. You don't have to fight for a spot. Also love the Crest, which was voted #1, and North Wildwood too.

I love going to Wildwood Crest Beach! Nice sand, friendly people. Just over all a nice location for those who love the beach and of course, FREE! If you don't bring chairs or umbrellas you can rent on the beach!

Loved the beach, but be prepared for a long walk from the boardwalk to water's edge. Very relaxing week. Boardwalk has many attractions. Lots of life guards. Had a nice dog beach, too. Definitely a good place for family.

There used to be, even showers, but now you have to change in one of their public restrooms without getting caught. Things have gone down hill in Wildwood!

This is a bit late - I hope you had a great trip! I think a few of the hotels offer complimentary, first come first served beach items, such as chairs. However, in the in-season, there are beach item rentals and they have... More
