Clean, always with enough room for all, no matter whether you are in the lower street numbers, or as high as the 50's. Always guarded, and a few weeks after Labor Day.

Beaches were clean, not crowded, lots of room for kids to play ball, fly kite, sit and relax. Didn't need badges as after Labor Day.

Weather was great and I really enjoyed trying something new -- beach walk with a group and guide. Also enjoyed the usual things like the boardwalk, Asbury Ave., good restaurants and beach.

The beach is wide and unencumbered so if you like crowds, or quiet, or a bit of both...you are on the right beach. Want more seclusion? Go downbeach and away fro the entertainment part of the boardwalk! NO problem. The beach has a fee so be prepared for that. Its nominal and you can by weekly or seasonal passes at... More

Went to OC for the first time with my family. We got free beach tags at the hotel where we were staying. Came to the beach really early to get a good spot. It got crowded after 30 minutes. The sand was nice but too many shells. The water itself was a bit dirty for me. 2 CONDOMS were floating!... More

We loved the reasonable vacation rental we stayed in on Central Ave. It had 6 bedrooms and had a yard and big porch. Great for family reunion. The city is safe. There are cops patrolling 24/7 and guards riding bikes who are police assistants. The best food is at Puccini's Italian Restaurant on West Ave. Low priced excellent food. The... More
