Oxford, Maryland, is not known for its beaches, but it actually has two beaches that are quite nice. 

100 Morris Street, Oxford MD 21654

Directions: From 95 South, take 896 to Rt.301 South. Remain on 301 for about 45 – 60 minutes. From 301 take 213 to Rt. 50 East. Remain on Rt. 50 to the Town of Easton. You will pass the airport on the right. About a quarter of a mile past the airport, take a right on Rt.322, the Easton By-Pass. At the fifth traffic light, take a right turn onto Rt.333, Oxford Road. Remain on Rt. 333 approximately 11 miles. Caution!! Obey the speed laws in Oxford, they are very strict!

Oxford, Maryland, beaches are small town beaches maintained mainly for the locals.

The pretty Oxford beach is in the city park, off Rt. 333 across from the Oxford Museum. It’s not a beach for laying on a towel in the sun. It’s tiny.

The beach provides stadium-seating in the grassy lawn and a wedge of sand to wiggle your toes in while watching the great sunset across the Chesapeake Bay. The park has picnic benches and a playground.

There’s a little grocery store across the street that sells sandwiches, wine, cheese and other supplies.

The other Oxford beach is bigger. It’s a narrow strip of sandy beach on the Tred Avon River where it goes into the Bay separated from The Strand (the street’s name) by a grassy lawn shaded with large trees. The beach area is two blocks down from the Oxford Ferry on The Strand.

There are no fees, no facilities, no picnic area and no lifeguards or close parking. But it’s a beautiful beach to take a chair or beach-towel and simply relax the mind.
