We have been going to Ocean City for many years. Normally, we stay near the northern end of the Boardwalk. The beach seems to be a bit quieter there. It seems that as you move south, the beach becomes more crowded and the people become less well behaved. This year we were in the 9th street area and, to be... More

The beach in Ocean City is wide, well-maintained, and has the best life guards in action that I have ever seen. And it is free. It is a major reason why Ocean City, MD is such a popular seashore destination spot.

The beaches in Ocean City are so clean! Garbage cans are cleaned out every night, and the sand is raked for garbage as well. The water is clean and inviting, no seaweed or jelly fish.

We stayed at a hotel right on the boardwalk/beach side of OC. I was impressed with how clean the beach was kept. Every night from my hotel balcony, I would watch the trucks drive up and down the beach to rake the sand and clean up any garbage left from visitors. I was also pleasantly surprised how free from rocks... More

Awesome! We enjoy it much more after Labor Day and before Memorial Day. During the summer, way too many people.

Have been going g to OC beach since I was a kid. Clean beaches, refreshing water, sweet summertime! There's blocks and blocks of beach to choose from, some quite busy, others quiet.

Love the OCMD beaches. We live 60 minutes from the Jersey Shore but we vacation in OCMD every year! The beach is free, clean and gorgeous. We stayed at 99th street this time and loved the beach. The only complaint I have is that there are almost no shells. Not sure why that is! They do a great job keeping... More

This beach is my absolute favorite in the continental US; simply because of the long stretch of clean sand from the boardwalk to the shore. I've seen nothing like it on this continent! Ocean City Beach has so much nature to enjoy! Be sure to bring your boogey board to catch the waves while taking in the glorious scenery. The... More
