Delaware Beaches

Many holiday makers choose Delaware for its sandy dunes and quiet coastal communities.

There are six beach towns in Delaware, each with their own style and allure, and each with their own reason to become your favourite.

Bethany Beach

Bethany Town was founded by members of the Christian Church of Washington DC and Pennsylvania. The original idea was not to found a town, but to find a suitable tract of land for a permanent yearly seaside assembly for the Christian churches of the country.

Driving into Bethany Beach you'll be greeted by the intimate shops leading you to a quiet sense of calmness. You breathe in the ocean air, and you can suddenly feel that this is your coastal home away from home.

Dewey Beach

Dewey Beach is blessed with ocean beaches on one side, a broad bay on the other, and restaurants and fun-filled spots that fill every inch in between. Sunshine by day, and brighter vibes by night.

Fenwick Island

Fenwick Island is the most south-eastern of the Delaware beaches.

With a state park next door, waterfront places to stay, and a beautiful beach to unwind, Fenwick Island is a serene place to enjoy the great outdoors, delicious dining and so much more.


Lewes is situated where the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean meet, at Cape Henlopen.

Quiet and dignified, charming and friendly, Lewes is perhaps the most beloved town in Delaware.

The Cape May-Lewes Ferry is the most memorable way to travel between Delaware and New Jersey.

Take the ferry on a 17-mile, 80 minute voyage across the Delaware Bay and cut miles off your trip along the Atlantic Coast.

Rehoboth Beach

From the beautiful ocean view to the iconic boardwalk Rehoboth Beach is a must-visit destination.

Located on the Delaware Shores, the Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach Resort Area is known for its award-winning boardwalk, awesome hotels, specialty stores, amusements, beautiful homes, tax-free shopping and some of the finest restaurants anywhere.

 South Bethany Beach

South Bethany Beach is the kind of place where memories of long summers have been sustained through generations, thanks in part to its intimate one mile long beach, adventures along the bay, and it’s quaint small town vibe.
