Ocean City New Jersey was voted New Jersey's #1 Beach in the 2015 New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium and Richard Stockton College of New Jersey Coastal Research Center contest.

In addition to Best Beach, Ocean City won first place in the categories for Best Destination for Family Vacation, Day Trip and Ecotourism. This is the second year in a row Ocean City has swept first place in all of the categories.  




The New Jersey's Top Ten Beaches Survey was introduced in 2008 to inspire pride in and stewardship of New Jersey's beaches while promoting a little healthy competition between New Jersey's favorite beach towns.

The partnership project, a collaboration between the New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium (NJSGC) and the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey's Coastal Research Center, has become a highlight of the state's pre-summer festivities.

Jersey Shore enthusiasts are invited to cast a vote for their favorite beach communities. The results of the survey are announced each year to kick off the Jersey Shore summer.
