We visited this beach during September. It wasn't overly crowded during our stay. The beach was clean & well maintained. While here we were able to watch a free air show.

Ocean City beach is your typical beach. It is nice, however it can get real packed very quickly. The water is not a bad temperature during the months of July and August.

Sure there's a beach tag fee but how else do you keep the beaches pristine and provide the other services that keep you safe?

Definitely the best beach in south jersey. Wide and clean with plenty of room for everybody. Have been going to oc beach for over 50 years and can't find another like it. Very family oriented.

I've been coming to Ocean City's beaches for 60+ years and love it here. OC has approximately 7 miles of beaches, so you have your choice of beach locations--looking at the Atlantic City skyline in the tony Gardens area, camp out along the boardwalk where...More

Always good to relax on. Lots of tiny shells. Plenty of beach for everyone to share. Not a long walk from boardwalk.

We really enjoy going to OC Beach. It is family-friendly. The lifeguards are attentive. It is a popular place to visit, so it is often fairly full, but we still manage to find a spot and enjoy ourselves. It is a private beach, so you...More

Nice wide beach with inexpensive rentals on umbrellas and chairs. Boardwalk fun for all. Lots of hotels places to eat things to do. Wonderful shore location. Lots of parking.

Ocean City beach staff, I live an hour one way from Ocean city but drive this 3 times a week to enjoy the beach with family and friends. I come even on rainy days just for the shopping and restaurants. But this year has been bitter experience due to the over crowing of personal tents, easy ups and other over sized family forts. I want people to enjoy the beach as well but feel some sort of enforcement needs to be put in place to regulate this issue. Either band them all together, charge people per shelter a 20.00 seasonal fee or 11.00 daily fee for these oversized shelters when they pitch tents on the beach for the day, or make them place the apparatuses toward the back of the beach where the public isn't at harm when the winds pick up and make these a dangerous projectile. I have been hit twice now by flying umbrellas and a shelter that wasn't properly tied down when the wind instantly kicked up. These are dangerous and need to be addressed. If people had to pay this fee it could go back into ocean city and perhaps the people would be a little more responsible when setting them up. Smoking and drinking is going on out in the open now and these shelters are not the issue when it comes to this problem. The issue seems to be going on between the life guards, I'm on the beach usually by 8 am and don't leave till around 5pm and it is clear that the beach is not being patrolled when the open containers of alcohol and smoking are clear and present. I am very disappointed this year but know that you will look into this and make some sort of decision to better serve and protect your patrons.
