PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- What's the best beach in New Jersey? 

USA Today’s 10Best Readers' Choice Travel Awards polled the public on the best beaches in New Jersey from Sandy Hook to Cape May. The votes are in, and Wildwood Beach tops the list.

Brigantine Beach took second and Asbury Park Beach ranked third.

John Siciliano is Greater Wildwoods Tourism & Development Authority Executive Director/CFO. He says Wildwood's beaches are clean, free and spacious.

"Because the beaches are so wide here, you know, it allows us to do so much more than maybe some other municipalities can do," Siciliano said, "and it's through no fault of their own, it's just that we are blessed with this resource and we try to maximize and use it to the best of our ability."
