Ocean City Beach, Ocean City

(4.2/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Regularly voted one of the best beaches in the country, Ocean City Beach offers clean sand and a perfect setting for swimming and relaxing by the sea. Ocean City's coastline is almost 13 km (8 mi) long, and it welcomes more than 1 million visitors per year. Lifeguards are present on the major part of the beach in the high season, and some parts remain guarded even during the off-season. Beach-accessible wheelchairs are available, but it's best to make a telephone reservation for these in advance. Work out when and for how long to visit Ocean City Beach and other Ocean City attractions using our handy Ocean City trip builder.
