Awesome dolphins today in the ocean! 39th street beach is Really nice. Less Crowded than the Boardwalk beaches, but still enough people to hear kids playing and having a good time!

Nicely groomed beach for families to enjoy. Always kept clean of trash and debris and just a really great place for family fun. We had made such great memories at this beach and always come back each summer.

Just returned from a wonderful week in Ocean City. We stayed in a third-floor ocean-front condo and spent a number of days at the beach. It is very clean and family-friendly. Perfect for sandcastle-building, jumping waves and flying kites. Very subdued compared to Wildwood or...More
