Crowded but very nice

The beach usually gets crowded near late morning when most get there. The beach has shells near the water but just wear something. The people seem very pleasant and friendly.

The weather for our stay in mid-september was perfect. The crowds had all gone for the season except for a few. There was no beach tag to buy or vying for a good spot, since we pretty much had the whole beach. This was a special trip for our family as we don't get to 'vacation' much, so the fact... More

The beach is kept very clean of litter and debris, has never had a drowning on a protected beach(approx. every other beach has lifeguards), and the beach is most areas is very wide and sandy, virtually no rocks.

The iconic down-at-the-shore beach; In summer, packed with reveling families, loungers and surfers. In the cooler months, a wide expanse of beach, used by walkers, runners, fishermen, and surfers. A delight for the soul. If the beach is too wind, try the miles long boardwalk, with its shops and cafes.

We have been to Ocean City Beach and boardwalk several times and love it. The beach is clean and you can walk for miles along the waters edge. The boardwalk has great shops as well as your typical tourist items, great places to eat and plenty of benches to sit and people watch. It is a great place to visit... More

With a clean beach and lots of room at a favorite spot, nothing can beat an ocean breeze to relax you and recharge the old batteries. The water is clean so no worries there either. A walk with your significant other cannot be beat.
