16th Street Surf Beach

Loved the surf beach. Our daughter surfs, so it was great for her. We loved it because it was less crowded than the other beaches

This is a dry town so you won't find much drinking on the beach like in the surrounding towns. Big families, small families...safe, great lifeguards. Easy parking and the beach isn't too wide before you get to the water

My husband and I have taken are two young boys to Ocean City for six summers in a row; I cannot say enough about this amazing beach town. First off I am a beach snob, when we travel I look for safety, comfort, while having enough attractions to keep the kids happy. OC has all of that and more! Clean,... More

I prefer to stay at this end of the island and go to the beach. The beach is so clean and this area is so convenient to the boardwalk and downtown shopping

Our favorite, by far, of all the New Jersey Shore beaches. After Sandy, the beach was replenished to an amazing size, rivaling Wildwood. The water is clean and lovely, and beaches are also clean and inviting. The boardwalk includes Johnson's Popcorn, Macko pizza, so many other eateries, rides for all ages, and no gambling games. Generally, the entire town is... More

Ocean City has a long, well protected beach. They work hard at keeping the beach clean and you can find lots of room for sun and fun.

The beach at Ocean City has always been one of my favorites! It is wide and well cared for. The boardwalk is expansive and there are great food and souvenir shops as well as games and amusement rides.

My daughter actually found a fully intact conch shell and it was against rocks no less!! We really do like Ocean City though because the water isn't a mile away from the boardwalk and the sand is nice.

Ocean City's beach is a gift of nature. First, it's exposure is mostly southerly, particularly in the area of the commercial boardwalk. This results in direct sunshine from dawn till dusk. The sands on the beach are well-maintained and clean. Although not a free beach, the beach patrol is diligent at preventing hazards from occurring, so you get value for... More

We have come to Ocean City many times over the last 35 years. We have never been disappointed. Lifeguards are second to none. The beaches are clean and well maintained. We are so very pleased that Ocean City continues to be a "dry" town.
