The beaches are beautiful, once you get to them. It's close to a mile walk to actually get to the ocean. Lugging all of your beach paraphernalia to the beach is challenging enough but to drag it back when you are tired and burnt is...More

I've been to just about all of the NJ beaches Wildwood is my favorite. Very large beach, no badges required. Four years in a row that I've found less broken shells, seaweed etc. Plenty of places to stay and a large boardwalk
