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.

Family loved the beach - the part that we stayed at had no boardwalk - very important thing to note is that they have access for disabled persons, as well as beach wheel chairs

I liked the scenary, relaxation, amusement parks, shopping, eating and everyone just having a good time. So many things to do and they stay open late.

It's a very long and deep beach with plenty of room and great swimming. The lifeguards are topnotch and the water is always warm and inviting. Try it, you'll like it.

There is nothing to dislike about the calm and beauty of this beach on the ocean. Clean sand and lots of happy faces!

By thatI mean absolutely free complete access for all residents and visitors from the inlet to the Delaware state line, no local municipality or local entrepreneur gets to make a penny off your sitting on these clean white sands or swimming in these clean waters in Maryland . Speaking of clean, get out there at dawn some morning and watch... More
