Ocean City, New Jersey is known as America’s Favorite Family Resort.

The Ocean City Council has confirmed that for the first time in decades, the cost of visiting the beach will increase.

This should come as no surprise as America is facing runaway inflation and the accompanying steep increase in overall costs.

Effective summer, 2023, here is the beach tag fee schedule as follows:

  • Daily and weekly beach tags will double
    • $10 for daily beach tag
  • Seasonal beach tag will increase by $10
    • $35 for a seasonal beach tag

You can save five dollars on the seasonal beach tag price if you purchase by May 31, 2023.

In the last full year (2021), Ocean City generated a little more than $4 million in beach revenue.

With the approved City Council increase, Ocean City expects to generate more than $5 million in beach tag revenue in 2023.

By doubling the cost of each beach tag, they could expect to see an even greater overall revenue achieved.
