Love coming to this beach! It's clean and fun to walk! It is a deep beach depending on the tide coming in or going out. It's beautiful!

Mid-September post-season absence of crowds was a big plus for us. Our kids were thrilled about being able to build plenty of sand castles.

Love the Beach, the Amusement Park, the nights activities such as various restaurants and clubs. Shopping was great. So much to see and do and not a million people either. It felt safe for the teens to go free. A all around great time. Wound go again.

Used to be a nice clean family oriented town, now I go toward Washington ave area it looks a little ghetto... All around the city there seems to be public housing building, broken bottles smashed on the ground, I've found a used needle in one of the trash cans at a convince store, oobs drug reputation is not a good...

We were at OOB for only a couple of days in September and were fortunate to have picture perfect weather. Since it was off-season, there were very few people there. The beach was extremely clean, with no seaweed washed up like on some beaches. If you like walking the beach, you'll love this one!

We have visited OOB many times over the years. It is a great beach to walk on any time of year. It is also a good beach for bodysurfing (a favorite past time) and is family friendly. There is easy access from most hotels and motels and several parking areas that provide access as well as changing rooms. Love OOB.

Very long and clean beach, ideal for a walk or run. Also great for just relaxing and building sandcastles!

If you don't like a like a crowd this is the perfect time for you. Even though we did not have the perfect weather still had a great time. Everything was walking distance. The beach was very clean.
