Lots of beach, but no life guards in May

Sand is clean, the ocean is fantastic. Water is still VERY cold in May so don't expect to swim. If you do, be advised that there are no life guards in May.

Came down for a quick vacation. Didn't know about the cars being here. Lots of classic hot rods, cars and trucks. The vehicles were basically racing on Coastal Highway. Quite a show.If you like cars and trucks you need to be here bext time.

We have been going to OC Beach for 28 years and counting. We have taken family, friends, and our children's friends with us. It is clean and safe. They clean it daily and the lifeguards are absolutely the best, always watching. It doesn't matter if you have 20 in your group or 2, there is plenty of room for all.... More

I grew up near Millersville and one of my favorite things to do in the summer is to drive out to Ocean City. It has come far and more people come year after year. The bay has been cleaned up and it shows in the ocean and on the drive down. Bring your suncreen and umbrella.

The beaches are far nicer than the beaches in Delaware, or New Jersey. Family friendly, with lifeguards on duty. We have came here for 6 years and have never had a bad visit.

As close to a Florida beach you'll find north of South Carolina-- beautiful sand and great views. Water is cold in early May but it's still nice.
