Reviewed May 23, 2013

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

“Ocean City, MD- Beach”
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”
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,

“Nice beach”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

As a family person sometimes to crowded. And younger crowd. I prefer more of a night life with adult crowd and more variety. But continue to go back. Like the beach and boardwalk but think rates are high when you do research you could stay in Florida Cheaper!!
