The Wildwoods’ sparkling, clean beaches, stretching for five miles across the shores of North Wildwood, Wildwood, and Wildwood Crest, are unlike most seashore resort beaches in that they are so spacious, offering plenty of room to spread out, and unlike most New Jersey beach destinations, the Wildwoods beaches are completely FREE with no beach tags required. They are the perfect spot for swimming, soaking up the sun, and relaxing on a hot summer day. For those looking for some adventure, the Wildwoods’ beaches also serve as an ideal location for surfing, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, power boating, jet skiing, sailing, kayaking, and whale and dolphin watching.

“We’re incredibly honored that the Wildwoods have been nominated for USA Today’s 10Best Beaches in New Jersey Reader’s Choice Awards Contest. It’s a recognition of what millions of our visitors have always known: Our spacious, pristine white sand beaches rank among the best in the country. We hope this nomination will encourage those who haven’t yet enjoyed our beautiful, free beaches to experience them soon,” explained Louis M. Belasco, Executive Director of the Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority (GWTIDA).

Throughout the season, the Wildwoods’ beaches also host several events, including championship soccer, lacrosse, baseball, beach volleyball, beach field hockey tournaments, the National Marbles Championships, The Race of Gentleman Vintage Car and Motorcycle Beach Drag Races, Monster Truck Races, Motocross Races, Sand Sculpting Festivals, headline concerts, the Wildwoods International Kite Festival, Ultimate Beach Frisbee Championship, and so much more.
