North Wildwood, Wildwood and Wildwood Crest

Schools     Things to See and Do

The Wildwoods, consists of North Wildwood (including Anglesea), Wildwood (including West Wildwood) and Wildwood Crest (including Diamond Beach). It is the largest barrier island in South Jersey and is located between the islands of Stone Harbor at its north and Cape May at its south.
 

All the Wildwood Beaches are big, beautiful and free. This is one of the few islands where there are no beach tags!

The beaches are beautiful, white, safe, and guarded from Memorial Day until Labor Day - 10 AM - 5:30 PM. These beaches are the widest at the Jersey shore. Where other beaches in South Jersey have a tendency to erode each year, Wildwood seems to be the recipient of their "lost" beaches. Best of all - there are no beach fees. No alcohol, barbeques or glass containers allowed on any of the beaches.

Wildwood Boardwalk - The boardwalk is two and a half miles of fun with 3 amusement piers, 2 water parks, 7 roller coasters. It boasts of the tallest ferris wheel on East coast, carnival games, convention center, movie theaters, shopping and eateries. If you don't want to walk , you can ride on the trams which run continuously. At night, the boardwalk takes on its own personality with flashing neon lights, music, and a friendly carnival atmosphere.
