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.

  • 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.
