This is the first beach ( rehoboth, Lewis, henlopen, OC) that has a helpful mesh walkway that gets you halfway out to the water. It was so much easier and much less dramatic for the exhausted kids!!

This is a wonderful beach! Our first visit was amazing! Great beach, great waves, very clean and you could walk the beach to the wonderful Boardwalk. We will definitely be back!

Lives up to it's moniker: The Quiet Resort. A quiet family beach town, plain and simple. Well run, well policed, well maintained, spotless beaches.

Clean beach. Loved the sand dunes and easy access to the beach via bicycle. I liked how you didn't have a long trek to get to the ocean (like Wildwood, NJ).

Bethany Beach are for those taking a family, couples or friend vacation. It is a beautiful little beach town for relaxing. Movie night on the beach once a week, awesome little shops, pizza and caramel pretzel yogurt. .....what could be better? May even see a beach wedding taking place. All is within walking distance.

The beach has sand and water, so it's like every other beach. What it also has is tons of people. It's convenient if your you're looking for a walk to beach, but if you're driving go elsewhere. There are better beaches in the area.
