It's clean and there is always a lot of space available on the beach. I like that the boardwalk and food is easily accessible.

What I love most about the beach at Ocean City is that the strand is just the right size. One doesn't have to lug the beach gear and the kids onw march across the desert. The ocean is close and inviting but at the same time quite roomy. My second favorite fact about Ocean City beach is the level that... More

Nice beach but lots are crushed seashells. Be careful. Boardwalk is not dog friendly all year round. You will need to carry your dog across the boardwalk to the beach.

as a lifelong summer participant in OC beaches since childhood, I can't say enough good things. The beaches are clean, wide(not as wide as Wildwood), and not too skinny(like the northern beaches)...they are just right... There is no steep drop off yet you can still walk what seems like endlessly given the right waves. Would recommend highly.

We came to Ocean City and spent time on the beach because we wanted to support the community after the hurricane. Unfortunately, there was a lot of dirty foam on the beach and in the water. Still, enjoyed our time on the beach reading and walking the beach but wasn't comfortable getting in the water.

We don't go to the shore often, but the weather was mid-70s and sunny with a nice breeze - end of September mid-week we had the huge sandy beach to ourselves!

The beach was clean and VERY LARGE. it was off season a bit so it wasn't crowded. Large waves, just great. We live only 25 minutes from Point Pleasant Beach, which we love. OCNJ beach is also awesome. Plus, it has a great boardwalk. We like it much better than PPB. The setup of chains of eateries, games, shops etc... More
