“I am hooked and have been forever”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

as a lifelong summer participant in OC beaches since childhood, I can't say enough good things. The beaches are clean, wide(not as wide as Wildwood), and not too skinny(like the northern beaches)...they are just right... There is no steep drop off yet you can still walk what seems like endlessly given the right waves. Would recommend highly.

“Still remnants of Hurricane Sandy”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We came to Ocean City and spent time on the beach because we wanted to support the community after the hurricane. Unfortunately, there was a lot of dirty foam on the beach and in the water. Still, enjoyed our time on the beach reading and walking the beach but wasn't comfortable getting in the water.

“Much wider beach than last visit”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

We don't go to the shore often, but the weather was mid-70s and sunny with a nice breeze - end of September mid-week we had the huge sandy beach to ourselves!

“BEAUTIFUL BEACH”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

The beach was clean and VERY LARGE. it was off season a bit so it wasn't crowded. Large waves, just great. We live only 25 minutes from Point Pleasant Beach, which we love. OCNJ beach is also awesome. Plus, it has a great boardwalk. We like it much better than PPB. The setup of chains of eateries, games, shops etc is great. Very clean look. Cant wait to go back
