The beach was great. We weren't expecting 75 degree temperatures in October but we got them. Great walk on the beach, very quaint. Found shells and it was clean with designated smoking areas!

The beach was well kept. The lifeguards were doing training on the beach. The distance from parking to shore was short.

not the same ocean city that I remember from when I was a kid. boardwalk at night is a magnet for thug kids. beach itself is packed during the summer months. if you stay from 40th street to 70th street be prepared for the flood of drunks at 2am pissing on your porch, walking into the wrong house and waking...

The Ocean City Beachs are some of the nices beaches in the middle and north east coasts. I enjoy a long walk even in the winter. Wear good shoes that are water resistant and confortable. Walk near the water where the ground is more firm. A warm jacket, hat and ear protection is a must.

OCMD has always been my favorite beach. The lower end of the beach is very wide and bustling with children playing. As you head north the beach gets narrower and quieter. The 62nd St beach has been my favorite for years.FYI try to stay away from the beachs that have high rise condos near them. They get very crowded.

I fell in love with Ocean City Beach. I grew up going south every summer for the beaches in Florida and this was a surprise! The water was cold, even in July but my son and I still had a wonderful time! This was the first time he was able to get into the ocean without fear of rip tide... More

If you like a crowd, and don't mind the blaring radios and noise, this is the beach for you. The waves are fun, though sometimes rough, and sand is clean. Roaming photographers will catch you in cute poses for keepsake portraits. Limited street parking. No facilities or concessions from our access way near a stretch of hotels and condos along... More

Even though it is off season, we love this beach. Always clean. Easy to access. The water looks very clear and clean. We couldn't swim because its November, but when we come in summer we do swim, and it is great. This is one of the best beaches we have been to.
