This beach is away from most crowds, so if you have a board, like me, you can skim, boogie board or surf. In addition, they have bon fires some nights which is awesome, Downside for parents is no lifeguards and for adults-no alcohol! Other downside is parking! good luck with that!

The community has done different things to keep families coming, for instance they have movie night which is wildly popular as well as... More

I've been to Dewey Beach many times over the past ten years. It's a small beach town with a handful of fun bars to enjoy in the summer. Don't go here though, unless you have money to burn on on bogus parking tickets and don't mind a police department that abuses their power. After my last visit here I will... More

Grew up on Rodney Street as a child and spent 25 summers at Dewey Beach. The beaches are beautiful and the locals are friendly. Excellent restaurants and beach activities for all ages! Here's to a BIG HUG all the way from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

I've been going to DE beaches since I was 9. My parents had a place for years, until they passed. I started taking my family 4 years ago to Dewey. The beaches are clean and FREE (unlike Jersey). No need for a car once you arrive, you can walk the entire town of Dewey or jump the trolley to Rehoboth.... More

I have never been to Dewey during "the season". I always go for the Greyhounds Reach The Beach event in October. This year was my 16th year and I LOVE it! Dewey is a quiet little beach town after all the summer revelers have cleared out and I love the quiet solitude of the sleepy little off-season place. Well worth... More

Beach is a short walk from the Atlantic Oceanside Motel. Bags are supplied for clean up and our dog loved it.
