Tide was high and dangerous to get in some days but otherwise, nice clean and sandy beaches. Every night the town cleans the beaches and the streets are very clean.. This has become our favorite beach for vacationing - convenient not to have to fly.

The Beach was very clean, especially given that it could get pretty crowded at times. There were plenty of lifeguards for safety.

The beach is always clean. Lifeguards are very attentive to the swimmers. It is a very pleasant place to visit for vacation.

The beach was clean and the sands were white as snow. The lifeguards are very attentive and there's plenty of trash cans to help keep this paradise prestige. I wish I could just bum here all my days.

Can't really say there was much I disliked! Nice beach, you can rent umbrellas easily. Beach was clean, quite a few trash cans available to you.

The OC beach is a long, wide stretch of Maryland sand that fronts the Atlantic Ocean between Delaware and Virginia. It is not dramatic, like New England or the Pacific Northwest (except when there is a hurricane). But it can be fun for families and folks trying to escape the pressure of DC.

If you want to walk a boardwalk and shop then this might be for you, but I think there are nicer/prettier/less busy beaches the same distance from Baltimore.

One of the cleanest beaches I've been on. Lots of jelly fish though. Plenty of space to lay out. Beautiful at night as well.
