“THE beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

There is just something about the beach at Ocean City that makes me smile....it's a great family beach. Well guarded by some of the friendliest lifeguards in the summer and quiet and peacefull in the off season. The entire 10 mile beach is cleaned each evening during the season something you just don't find everywhere. The beach is significantly wider near the inlet and narrows to the north where its quieter and somewhat less crowded

Beach is very cleaned and nicely groomed each morning. Enjoyed the memorial benches along the boardwalk.

“Ocean City, MD- Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The Atlantic Ocean has always been a greenish brown color. It is not dirty (like other reviewers have said). Not every beach has crystal blue waters, just a heads up:

"The Atlantic off the East Coast of the United States usually appears green. This is due to the presence of algae and plant life. The ocean may appear gray under a cloudy sky or brown when the water contains a lot of sediment, as when a river empties into the sea or after the water has been stirred up by a storm."

If you visit the beach where the boardwalk is you will find lots of food and shops, as well as bathroom facilities and chair/umbrella rentals. The beach has lifeguards during peak hours. The beach can get crowded very quickly, so to get a good spot you need to be on the beach early in the morning. I LOVE Ocean City, MD. You get a great mix of people, and it is very family friendly. It is not a fancy, upscale, resort type place- which is nice.

“Beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Beach was clean but water looked dirty. It was rainy and cold, but we walked the board walk and I shopped. It was too cold to go in the water. The board walk shops had a lot of the same items. I was looking for a bracelet but I was unable to find something that I liked,
