Great beach - if you're there for any length of time, it's worth bringing your own, or buying a cheap umbrella and beach chairs, since a deckchair and umbrella costs $25 per day. Great for the kids - perfect sand for sand castles !

Loved the beach. It was clean and relaxing. We enjoyed hearing the waves on our balcony everynight. The lifeguard was very nice and informative about the ocean's conditions.

Beaches are dirty. The crabs are poor quality. The police are "always" looking to ticket you for everything and anything. The hotels are roach infested. Think twice before wasting your time and money.

Love to go again with my family! Lot's to see and do at the boardwalk! But for me, I just love laying on the sand and enjoy... More

The beach is immaculate. Pretty much all families on the beach. We stayed on the northern end, clos to DE line. We heard that its alot more noisy and crowded as you get closer to the Boardwalk.

My family and I take several trip to Ocean City Maryland every since they were very little. They still love the beach as much as they did today, as when they were little. There is always something to do. The restaurants are great, the shops are great. We just love this place. The sand sculpture are amazing. They kids love... More
