Wild summers on Wildwood Beach

Bustling and hustling and packed with ice-cream-colored beach shacks, Wildwood Beach comes alive from spring to fall. There are twirling Ferris wheels and whizzing loop-de-loops at the Morey's Piers. There are candy floss stalls and hot dog concession stands everywhere you look. There are rolling waves and sunbathing spots aplenty. Wildwood Beach vacation rentals pepper the blocks behind the sands, some with views over the Atlantic, others hiding pools in their private gardens.

Whisked away along the Atlantic in Wildwood Beach

There's no question about it: Wildwood Beach's biggest pull is its handsome coastline. If you've booked Wildwood Beach vacation rentals with sea views, then you could just stay put on your private balcony. If not, what about a heart-thumping helicopter tour of the NJ coastline to the north and south? Or, maybe a boating outing will do it, to wonder at the shimmering sands from afar as dolphins and whales splash on the broadside. You can also prepare to get wet – jet skis and parasails, windsurfs and waterskiing are all part of the Wildwood package.

Riding the rollercoaster that is Wildwood Beach

The action starts with the bright lights and beeping arcades of Morey's Piers, where twirling teacups and thrilling wooden coasters shooting this way and that. Then, it's on to the Seaport Aquarium on the boardwalk, which has reef sharks and snapping crocs within. Classic cinema houses looking like something out of the 1950s beckon when the rainclouds come, while the Cape May Zoo can be reached in a jiffy – think selfies with giraffes and tigers. That said, most days will be taken with sunbathing sessions and swimming dips along Wildwood Beach itself.

Wildwood Beach is ideal for sun seekers

Wildwood Beach all but closes for business during the winter months. You're certainly better off joining the crowds in the warmer seasons, which start with spring and go all the way to September. Search for Wildwood Beach vacation rentals in May if you prefer to have the sands at their quietest, go for June, July, and August if you want the throbbing energy of the resort at its highest, and consider the fall if you're after something easier on the wallet.

Wildwood Beach is sprayed by the Atlantic Ocean

Jutting out of the extreme southern side of the Garden State, Wildwood Beach surely has one of the most spectacular settings in NJ. Long, sandy beachfronts run the whole length of the town and beyond. Occasionally, they are interrupted by clusters of protected marshland and wetland, where birders spy out waterfowl and lazy creeks drift into the sea. The South Cape May Meadows are the perfect place to see that sort of wilderness. You can walk the wooded trails and spot river otters or rare birds on the Atlantic Flyway.
