“GO! no ugly hotels or condos here. thank GOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

just beach and untouched scenery, much to see and learn here. visit the visitors centers and walk the easy trails. if you like seashells, walk to the left of the swimming area. you can get away from the crowds with a short walk. very clean and well managed. every employee I met was very nice. take a camera. I hate crowded filthy beaches like myrtle and this place seems like heaven to me.

“Wild and beautiful: escape!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

Less people per square foot of sand than any other beach within hundreds of miles. Wild ponies begging for Doritos - or anything for that matter! Getting in can take a while if it's crowded and parking can be a real challenge: best to get there early morning or late afternoon or weekdays. But, as a local, I can tell you: off season is by FAR the best!

“Wild Ponies on the Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

It does not get better than this. Wild ponies and a beach. Assateague is the best untouched beach on the east coast. It is a great place to swim and relax as well as numerous other activities. I highly recommend at least one trip to this little barrier island. It is well worth it.

“Pristine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

Soft sand, salt water - what else do you need? This is one of the last and fast disappearing great beaches of the US.

“seriously puzzled...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

just came back from a trip to this beach... went because of the raving reviews on TA, especially N7 among 25... gray sand, cold murky water... yes, it's large and wild, but can't see how it can number anything among the beautiful florida beaches: white sand and warm emerald water. sorry, not going back, or recommend to anyone. just mediocre...
