How N.J. spends the summer.

Wildwood Crest is one of only six beaches in New Jersey that are free for everyone.

While it may seem like a bit of a hike to get to the water, it’s definitely worth the walk for the family-friendly environment. Large groups have no trouble finding space to call their own for the day, ice cream vendors walk the beach offering cool treats and ice cold water, and there’s plenty of room to play a game of catch in the sand behind the crowds.

Wildwood Crest also has several festivals throughout the summer and early fall, including the Sand Sculpting Festival and Christmas in July festivals in July, and the Seafarers Celebration in September.

After hitting the beach during the day, walk around town and check out the neon lights of the Doo-Wop motels or head up to Wildwood for a night out on the boardwalk.

Wildwood Crest Beach Patrol lifeguards are on duty from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily from Memorial Day weekend through the weekend following Labor Day. Surfing is permitted at the Rambler Road and Aster Road beaches. Beach games and kite flying are permitted on the back areas of the beach.
