Sun sets on the Jersey Shore at 430 in November. Peaceful, very clean and a nice place for a stroll. Boardwalk runs adjacent. We picked up a couple black shells on the sand for momentos.

Happy to not have to walk a lifetime to get to the ocean. More crowded closer to the boardwalk. Life Guards on duty during the peak season. Kept clean.

There is so much to do, take a walk on the boardwalk, go shopping, relax at home and watch the ocean rise and fall.

Preferring off season strolls on the beach, this one is perfect. The beautiful pier and boardwalk attractions offer many photo ops. This time we were lucky to find some sea glass.

We took a late afternoon walk in late October. The beach was not very crowded and was quite clean. It was a nice time to watch the sunset.

9th street beach is great however get there early as it gets crowded. It is perfect when you have older children. When the older children want a break from ocean/beach, they can walk on the boardwalk getting their treats leaving me time to relax and read on the beach.

This is a wonderful family beach. It is kept super clean by the city. Beautiful sand and protected dunes. You can walk or run the length of the island.

The beach was beautiful. It was very clean and they have lifeguards that you can rent umbrellas and chairs from - so saves you from lugging everything to beach. They even set them up for you. Beautiful beach

A little south of Atlantic City on the endless Jersey shore is Ocean City Beach. Not as famous as its more southerly Maryland cousin, this beach has just as many activities to enjoy without the huge summer crowds. Parking is scarce as expected in a shore town. Luckily, there was an open lot near the beach for a $15 fee.... More
