Ocean City Beach

Wight Street & 135th Street

It's 10 miles of beautifully kept, family-friendly ocean beach. And it's absolutely free - the way beaches should be!

Ocean City, Maryland's beaches are perfect for swimming and sunning, for surfing and fishing, for kayaking and canoeing. During the summer, you'll find free family activities six nights a week, including concerts, movies, even Beach Olympics!

And when you're ready for more fun, one of America's best boardwalks (as ranked by the Travel Channel) is only a few steps away. Get out early for an invigorating bike ride, shop an endless variety of stores, or head for the arcades and amusements.

Build a sandcastle. Hit the waves. Or just kick back and relax. Ocean City's beaches are proof that the best things in life are free - and a major reason for you to get to OC ASAP.

I can't say anything about the beach as this is not where we go but we do stop to visit the boardwalk each year we go to another beach. We pick an evening and drive over for the night. I love visiting the board walk but just can't take the chaos more than that one night. There's just nothing like a night on the boardwalk with the lights, people and action. Then back to my quiet place.

Great place for families, beach was clean and felt very safe. Managed to get free parking just a block from the beach. Lots of places to eat at and things to do besides the water which had great waves and not to much debris. Highly recommend for a day trip.

Family friendly beach! My kids, 6 year old and 18 months old, had a blast! We went to beach in 56th St because that was close to our hotel. There were lot of little kids surfing. It was very shallow, so I did not have to worry. My kids played in water, sand, collected shells, and my husband spotted a dolphin! It was a great experience, and we will come next year too! The reason I did not give 5 stars is, there are many youngsters around who break traffic rules. So be careful when you cross the road even if the walk signal is on.Two times it happened when we were crossing the road with kids and on the same day! I hope there is a camera near that signal.

Beautiful. My first time going to any beach, and it was amazing. Beautiful views, not too packed, clean sand; just the way a beach should be. We even saw dolphins in the distance. The hotel was ok. It was worth the trip from Philly!
