Crest again honored as one of New Jersey’s Favorite Beaches


Wildwood Crest finished as the runner-up to Ocean City in the New Jersey’s Favorite Beaches contest for the second straight year, contest organizers announced Thursday in a ceremony at the Ocean City Music Pier.

The contest is a project of the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium.

The contest, conducted through online voting, was created in 2008 as a Top Ten Beaches survey to encourage stewardship and pride in the state’s beaches while promoting a little healthy competition among the state’s beach towns, according to the NJSGC.

The contest was changed this year to New Jersey’s Favorite Beach. Winners were selected from each of four coastal counties in the state – Cape May, Atlantic, Ocean and Monmouth.

Approximately 10,000 votes were cast in this year’s contest, which was open from May 1 through June 15. Ocean City received the most votes and was named New Jersey’s Favorite Beach. Wildwood Crest finished second to Ocean City both overall and in Cape May County.

“We pride ourselves on having one of the safest, cleanest and best beaches not only in New Jersey but also across the country and even the world,” said Don Cabrera, Wildwood Crest Commissioner of Public Works and Recreation.

“We are extremely appreciative and humbled that so many people thought enough of our beach to vote for us in this contest. We congratulate Ocean City for winning this contest and all of our neighboring beach towns for all they do to make the beaches in Cape May County such an asset to our visitors and residents alike.”
