I had the opportunity to visit the jetty during a recent windstorm. There were waves rolling over the jetty with tons of water spilling inside. The amazing part were the number of people climbing the rocks to get closer - not a good idea and...More

Visiting the Ocean Shores North Jetty is a must-see experience. I’ve never walked and seen dunes and dune grass like this. It’s just so beautiful. Be sure to bring a wind breaker and even gloves in December on a blustery day. You will say brrrr...More

Nice Beach but jetty only possible for the younger generation. Sand by jetty even hard to walk on. Nice big drift wood on display

It's a must for the waves and view but on a clear day there is no place to watch the sunset. When it's Stormy it's a fun adventure. Bundle up. Love it. We go every trip!

We visit the North Jetty several times a year and find it to be ever changing. During warm weather playing in the sand is a must and during winter weather, watching the waves break over the rocks is exciting.

There is no camping allowed on the beach at Ocean Shores. If you want to camp the Ocean City campground about 10 miles out of town is your best option. If you want to stay real close to the beach the cabins at Snugglers... More
