Lifeguard stands may not be exactly at street ends as guards will place the stand in the safest area depending on water conditions. 

Fifth Street Beach will be closed to swimming due to exposed rocks in the bathing area, and 53rd Street will not open this week due to unsafe rip currents (the stand at 55th Street will move closer to 54th Street).

Thank you for helping to keep Ocean City safe. The Ocean City Beach Patrol strongly urges bathers to swim only at guarded beaches.  If you have any questions, please call 609-525-9200. For information on guarded beaches and all OCBP activity, visit For all emergencies, call 9-1-1.
