Simply lovely

This is my first visit here and this beach was a winner. Very clean, nice soft sand and respectful people. Nice place to grab and chair and let the sound of the waves relax you.

We rented a house right on the beach. The views were spectacular! The week we were there was Hot Rod week. Busy streets!

The board walk looked a little better without all the food and birds walking around in front of u. A lot of upgrades to the beach area looks good

It was a beautiful beach and well taken care of. Would love to come back when the water is warm. It was my very first trip to Ocean City.

A great place to go, especially off season, but closest to. The boardwalk was filled with shops, eateries, and others. I loved it there except cleaning my hotel room for plain and simple hygienic stay.

I finally decided to take a drive to Ocean City last weekend and wasn't disappointed. The beach was gorgeous and was not very busy. Everyone seemed to be pleasant and it wasn't crowded at all. I thoroughly enjoyed walking on the beach and looking at the beautiful waves in the ocean. I will definitely return.

Great nonsmoking beach! Beautiful and clean. Hard to park in season so get there early! No cost to get on beach but most side roads have meters. You can go in front of boards or travel further north for less crowds. Safe with great lifeguards but dangerous riptides many times during season so don't swim without lifeguards on duty.

Love Ocean City beach! Clean and smoke free! Great place to catch some rays and hang out with friends and family. Jump a wave or relax in the sun, one of the best beaches in Maryland.

Ocean City, MD's beaches are spectacular. Wide beaches, clean, soft sand & attentive lifeguards make visiting OCMD a vacation to remember fondly. Though winter storms frequently take much of the sand out to sea, during the winter off-season, sand is dredged from the ocean floor in order to widen the beaches for the start of the season. This makes a... More

We love the beach at Ocean City, Maryland. We have been coming here for over 30 years. One of our favorite beaches. We also like Myrtle Beach, S.C. OC is very clean and they take care of it. We always stay at an oceanfront condo. In case of rain, we still have a lovely view. We usually travel here twice... More
