Wildwood's beaches, 500 yards wide at points, are the largest in New Jersey. It all started in 1911 when Cape May, located about 10 miles south of Wildwood, finished digging its harbor, with jetties that extend 4,500 feet from its mouth into the Atlantic Ocean. While this protects boats from rough water, it also creates an erosion nightmare. The north jetty traps sand on its north side, the Wildwood side, while starving beaches farther south. Today, the sand in the natural ebb tidal flow that would have made its way to this channel gets diverted to Wildwood's main beach, which makes it an ever-growing beach. This is the perfect beach for a Jeep show, and there’s more than enough room for growth.
