Beautiful stretch of beach

It is such a beautiful stretch of beach on a quiet Fall morning. The sun is just breathtaking on the shore line. It makes for a nice afternoon.

I thought that the beach at Ocean City was nice.It was clean.You easily found beach umbrellas and boogie boards to rent.Public restrooms were available near the beach.The actual area where you are allowed to swim is small.

Ocean City Beach is a lovely stretch of Beach and offers a spot to swim and picnic too! It's a long stretch of sandy beach and waves. Take your chair, towel and drinks and spend an afternoon on the Beach!

Clean beach with very attentive life guards. This beach does require the purchase of beach tags, but it is well worth it. Beach tags may be purchased at the visitor's center, at each of the entrances to the beach along the boardwalk, or from the beach patrol. Most areas of the beach have a gradual slope going out into the... More

We were in town for a family function this past weekend. Weather was perfect so we decided to visit the beach. I grew up in New Jersey, but somehow had never been to Ocean City. We found the beach to be extremely clean, well maintained and much wider than many others. It was also, being off season now, blissfully restful... More

I find nothing more enjoyable than reading a good book on the beach, or walking along the beach at dusk, enjoying a fine ocean breeze. But if Ocean City wants its beach to survive the long haul it needs more than just replenishment. It needs large bulky dunes. No, beachfront owners don't like to hear this, but you don't see...

Only been coming here for 35 years for Indian Summer weekend but sure glad I did. Great family tradition and a super nice place to have it. Great restaurants and a nice boardwalk. Hoping to make it another 35.
