Sun, Sand, and Celebration: Ocean Beach Parties and Atlantic City Boardwalk Fun

Published: July 2023

When the summer hits and the temperatures rise, that’s when the real fun in Atlantic City begins—the city truly comes alive, unfurling into an adult playground. 

Whether you want to sequester yourself away in the luxuries of Ocean Casino Resort or prefer to explore the vibrant carnival-like atmosphere of the Atlantic City Boardwalk, there are countless opportunities to soak in the sun, sand, and celebration.   

Are you ready to make some memories? 

#1 Go for a Dip

Want to cool off from the summer sun without getting sandy? 

Then, head on over to the Eclipse pool—the perfect place for basking under the sun, diving into your favorite book, indulging in a leisurely swim, or savoring a chilled cocktail of your choice. Located on the Lobby Level, the indoor/outdoor pool is open and kept heated year-round, boasting incredible scenic views of the ocean and coastline. 

Fancy an exclusive soiree? Reserve a Daybed & Cabana and luxuriate in private poolside dining, drinks, and even a soothing massage.

Or, if you want to soak in the family fun, simply claim an open lounge chair by the pool deck and enjoy the hustle and bustle. 

#2 Take an Ocean Cruise 

Want an experience that combines relaxation, sightseeing, and a touch of luxury into one unforgettable outing?

Set sail on an Atlantic City cruise. Choose your own maritime adventure. Some of the aquatic activities our previous guests have raved about include: 

  • Deep-sea fishing expeditions
  • Dolphin and whale-watching cruises
  • Wine-tasting boat rides 
  • Parasailing adventures 
  • Sunrise or sunset cruises 
  • Boat parties 

With a seemingly endless selection of boat charters to choose from, your ideal seafaring journey awaits. Just remember to make plans and reservations ahead of time to ensure that you don’t have to play stow-away.  

#3 Party at the HQ2 Beachclub

When it comes to beachside partying, few destinations can rival the experience offered by HQ2 Beachclub. There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as a pool-side rave. 

Nestled adjacent to the legendary Atlantic City Boardwalk, HQ2 Beachclub captures the true essence of a summer paradise party scene. With 360-degree vistas of the stunning Atlantic, a full-service bar, and a world-class DJ setup, HQ2 is designed to host some of the biggest artists in the world; scheduled headliners include Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Above and Beyond, Alesso, and more.  

This hub of high energy and indulgence boasts all the modern amenities VIPs might expect, including: 

  • A vibrant main pool area for general admission
  • Six exclusive bungalows equipped with private pools and luxurious day beds
  • More than 30 VIP sections spread across the lower and upper decks

#4 Dance at the HQ2 Nightclub

The party doesn't end with the setting sun in AC. That’s just when the fun begins. 

Once the sun goes down, beachgoers swap their bathing suits for night-time chic and the day club also morphs from a sunny extravaganza to an electrifying nightlife experience at HQ2 Nightclub

The two-level destination is home to both the primary Nightclub as well as the Mezzanine. Either locale provides a place where guests can drink, dance, socialize, and enjoy world-renowned musical talent.

Put simply, HQ2 Nightclub is the place to party in AC. That’s why it’s been named: 

  • 2019 Nightclub of the Year – Atlantic City Weekly
  • Best Bottle Service – 2020 Nightlife Awards
  • 100 World’s Best Nightclubs – International Nightlife Congress 

#5 Relax at Nola’s Bar & Lounge 

If your idea of nighttime revelry leans more towards intimate conversations, live music, and refined sips rather than high-energy fist-pumping, Nola's Bar & Lounge at Ocean Casino Resort is your sanctuary.

Sprawling across 2,800 square feet of elegantly designed space, Nola's Bar & Lounge is an upscale retreat where refined taste meets a laid-back seaside vibe that offers both craft beers, fine wines, and specialty cocktails. 

Open to guests Thursday through Sunday, with live music every Friday and Saturday, come and see why this jazzy spot was voted Best Lounge by Casino Player’s Best of Dining & Nightlife Awards 2022.

#6 Enjoy the Beach 

Who needs walls and a roof when the radiant sun, endless sky, and sandy beach invite you to a celebration of summer?

Atlantic City's coastline isn't just a beach—it's a communal gathering spot, a playground, and a grand stage for unforgettable moments. Bathe in the golden sunlight, let the waves tickle your toes, and (discreetly) enjoy your favorite refreshments while the rhythmic sound of the surf sets the backdrop. Your seaside escapades can include: 

  • Beach games
  • Picnics
  • Sunset watching
  • Yoga
  • Bonfires 
  • Surfing and paddle boarding 
  • Snorkeling 

#7 Stroll the Boardwalk 

Ocean Casino Resort is conveniently located directly on the northernmost point of the Atlantic City Boardwalk. The elevated, wooden boardwalk spans more than 4 miles, offering tourists an array of shops, bars, restaurants, games, and more. Some must-see attractions include: 

#8 Take a Swing at Top Golf Suites

Want to work on your golf game without ever leaving the comfort of Ocean Casino Resort? 

Check out our TopGolf Swing Suites—the largest TopGolf simulator experience of its kind in the country. Guests can indulge in the excitement of this state-of-the-art facility, featuring 11 spacious simulator suites that can accommodate up to 8 people in each bay.
