We love this beach and the pool is awesome! So much to do and see. Although the bathrooms smell like a sanican

Great bands on the boardwalk in the summer! I worked here 51yrs ago & lived in New London County for a long time. The beach is clean & the boardwalk is fine BUT it looks the SAME as it did or worse...

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I’ve been coming to Ocean Beach since I was a child. It’s been a few years and some of the negative reviews almost scared me away. I’m glad I came. Just like I remember..... more

I had a great time here with my kids last week! Parking was reasonable $10, and the parking lot was large enough to hold a lot of cars and close to the beach area so walking was minimal. Beach was clean and a lot of room to sit. The water was very clean and crystal clear! There's a small inlet which was great for smaller children to swim and catch hermit crabs. The bathrooms were clean and there was ice cream available as well as other treats. I am definitely going back here again because it's closer to me so with gas prices rising I don't plan on driving further then I need to.
Out of all the beaches I have gone to, this by far is the best one. The setup of the beach is really convenient. The beach is clean. Cool restaurant and gift shop. Outdoor shower is available. My only complaint is how long it took for us to get in. The line to pay took us a whole hr to get in. I'm hoping that it was because it was memorial day. I would totally go back again.
$30 just to park. $13 for a hot dog. $7 for a small cone ice cream. The arcade is old and most of the machines were broke or they just take your coins and then doesn't work! The Olympic size pool is closed. I lived in CT for many years and this was my 1st trip to Ocean City. What a disappointment but what do you expect in CT! Unless you live in Greenwhich its hard to afford bring a family. Not worth it.
Ocean beach was good, it is expensive though if you come alone as I did as parking was $30 on a Sunday, so be aware of that, everything else was good, there is an ice cream place and 2 fast food restaurants tp satosfy your beach cravings, I'd highly recommend you to bring a cooler and your own beverages though. It was open for swimming but the water is so cold that as soon as you get in you'll want to jump out. It was a pleasant time by my own just enjoying and recharging energy for the week
Quickly became one of my favorite places to be this past summer. Perfect place for families. Water is super clean either by the cove or in the open. Very small waves perfect for kids of all ages. We loved bringing our family here all summer long and the season pass is definitely worth it. Staff is courteous and hard working. Prices are reasonable for food and drinks. Theres a restaurant, a bar, a mini gokf course, a small amusement park and an arcade. Pretty much something for everyone. And if you are just interested in hanging out at the beach you can watch the water and look for submarines sailig by. The park has events going on nightly during the summer and 3 different nights for fireworks. We will definitely be returning for many summers to come.
