We've enjoyed the Ocean City, NJ beach for four years now and it has become a family favorite. The beach is clean and well guarded. The crowds are not overwhelming and the attendants are pleasant. We've stayed at 1st Street, 11th and 20th. The first street beach area was the most crowded. 20th street the least. Swimming is permitted between... More

The Ocean City Beach is clean, spacious in most places, with exceptionally clean water. Wonderful and attentive Life Guarding makes it a safe place to swim, within the boundaries! The Ocean City beach is not free, but a fantastic value. You get what you pay for and more!

I thought the beach was clean, with surprisingly clear water. First day we went around 3pm and had no problems except finding a spot b/c it was packed with limited swim area around life guards. The second day we thought that we would go early to get a nice spot. It was low tide and the shore line was full... More

Clean, well kept and convenient facilities too. Ocean City is such a great family town and the beach mirrors that. Mornings on the beach, afternoons or evenings on the boardwalk. Can't beat it.

We love Ocean City and have been returning every summer for over 15 years. My kids and husband love it. So relaxing and clean and family oriented.

wonderful beach, wide, flat, swimmable, There are nearby bathrooms, first aid station, and life guards are on duty 9-5. Chairs and umbrellas are available for rent. the sand is clean, easy to dig and mold, so bring a shovel. We all had a great time at this beach.

The beach is well situated and not a long walk to get to the facilities and the board walk is right behind you. You can get food and bring it back to your spot with no problem at all. The people were friendly and everything was clean.

We stayed around 34th street, so pretty far from the boardwalk, which was just what I wanted. The house we rented provided beach tags which made it even better (not being from NJ I hate paying for the beach). In our area the water was calm and the sand was powder soft. They had restrooms and a rental shack at... More

I've been a Jersey resident for most of my life, but somehow it took me 37 years to make it to OC. I've been to pretty much ever major beach spot in the state, but somehow missed this gem. I guess as you get older and have kids, you aren't as interested in visiting the more popular spots like the... More

This was our first trip to OCNJ. We were surprised at how clean it was but then found out it is a dry town - that explains it! We had a blast. The beaches were nice, busy, but we had fun.
