Holiday Travel Guide

Swim in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, relax on soft white sands or stroll by the arcades and shops on the exciting boardwalk at this family-friendly city beach.

Ocean City Beach is a long stretch of coast on the Ocean City barrier spit, where you can make the most of the gorgeous Atlantic coastline. Choose one or more ways to enjoy this lifeguard-patrolled, family-friendly beach in the heart of Ocean City. Swim, sunbathe, check out local events and explore the boardwalk. Surf the breaks that roll in from the ocean, ride a horse, surf fish and kayak.

When the weather is warm, pick a spot on the sand and settle in for some time under the sun. Build a sandcastle and take in the ocean views. Play in the water in the safe swimming area or investigate the two stretches of beach that are reserved for surfers and bodyboarders. Surf fishing is also possible at a safe distance from swimmers and surfers. In winter and early spring, go horseback riding or bring your pets for a walk on the beach. With 10 miles (16 kilometers) of shoreline to explore at Ocean City Beach, you’ll have plenty of space to play ball, sunbathe or cast a fishing line.

In summer, attend free, fun-filled activities and events six nights a week. Go to music concerts, open-air cinema screenings and beach sports events. Nearby, you’ll find the Ocean City Boardwalk. Wander along the boardwalk to enjoy stunning views and visit a collection of shops, arcades, amusements and rides. The boardwalk is a great destination for an early-morning bicycle ride or a lazy evening stroll. Buy some tasty seafood and enjoy a sunset picnic or head to one of the bars for a drink.

Ocean City Beach is situated on the stretch of Atlantic coastline fronting the city. The beach is equipped with several public restrooms and rinse-off stations. Beach wheelchairs are available for rent from the Beach Patrol. Parking is available on the streets behind the beach. Ocean City Beach is closed in the late evening for maintenance. Stay in oceanfront accommodation for magnificent views and easy access to the beach. Downtown accommodation is also just a short stroll to the beach.
