We think you’ll agree: the best beach is in Ocean City, Maryland! But don’t take our word for it. Ask TripAdvisor! We recently made its list of the nation’s Top 10 beaches. That’s right. We’re not just talking about beaches near Maryland. We’re one of the top beach destinations in all of America!
Come experience 10 miles of beautifully maintained sand that’s ready and waiting for family fun. And unlike some other beaches, ours is absolutely free! So you don’t have to pay for, or hassle with, beach passes.
Enjoy swimming and sunning along the Atlantic, not to mention surfing, fishing and even kayaking and canoeing! And during the summer, you'll find free family activities including movies, concerts and fireworks!
When it’s time to take a break, visit our three-mile boardwalk, voted by the Travel Channel as one of America’s best! Get out early for an invigorating bike ride, shop an endless variety of stores, or head for the arcades and amusements.
Ocean City, Maryland is filled with natural beauty and we'd like to keep it that way! Protecting our surrounding marine life, coastal bays and preventing pollution could not be more important but we need everyone to pitch in! Help keep the beach, streets, sidewalks, parking lots, and storm drains free of garbage - our land and ocean are all connected! It's important to take personal responsibility and dispose of your trash properly when you’re visiting Ocean City.
