Beach Rules and Information

  • OCNJ is a Dry Town, therefore there is no selling of alcohol in stores or restaurants in Ocean City. However, right across the bridge in Somers Point, there is a liquor store that is easily accessible. Vacationers are allowed to have alcohol at their rentals but there is no alcohol permitted on the beach.
  • Public Restrooms: Public restrooms are located at 1st, 6th, 12th, 34th, and 58th Streets at the beach, as well as in the Music Pier at Moorlyn Terrace & Boardwalk. Bath houses and changing facilities are also available.
  • Biking: Biking is an extremely popular activity throughout OCNJ. This includes on the boardwalk, but be careful not to be on the boardwalk after 12pm. You will be stopped and asked to leave the boardwalk. It is a beautiful ride in the morning though, and suggested when not extremely busy. Additionally, you can also ride throughout the town. We love to bike down to 59th street, which drops you off at Corson’s Inlet State Park. (It’s about 14 miles up and back, but well worth it!)
  • Beach Tags: Six seasonal beach tags will be provided at the Beach House and available for your use.* (If additional tags are needed, please purchase at the boardwalk.) Beach Tags are required for children age 12 & up and are in effect from June 8, 2013 through September 2, 2013. Weekly beach tags are $10.00 and daily beach tags cost $5.00

*Don’t forget to leave the seasonal passes at the Beach House before you leave!

    How far away from the beach is the house?

    • The house is approximately a 1/2 mile from the beach. There are four main streets/blocks that separate the house from the beach. It goes: Central, Wesley, Ocean, Atlantic… and then the beach!
