It's not a great beach. Very little sand left at high tide, hard to walk on. But it is long and clean. People were warm and friendly.

Consistently award-winning ocean beach. Well guarded, safe beach. Dogs are welcome year-round, and in season before 9am and after 5pm.

The first two weeks of October are excellent beach time. Few visitors, open shops and the best restaurants are still open

Dewey was a great beach. It was very clean and well maintained with a good amount of life guards. It's not a very far walk from the start of the beach to the water and waves were pretty tame when went.

The beach was very close to our hotel so we tried it on day 1. Beach was very quiet and clean, no food or drink available so come organised. Highly recommended.

I really liked this beach in between Rehoboth and Ocean City. It is small and quiet and has the same waves and beach as the others do. We could just walk down the street and we were on the beach. It was just a short distance to the other beaches if you must go to them.

Enjoyed beach. Very uncrowded after Labor Day. Enjoyed seeing schools of dolphins. They swam within feet of us. Was surprised to see beach was dog friendly. Never saw so many dozens of dogs on beach. Most dog owners were good. Kept dogs on leash, or dogs were under control. Only one idiot let dog wander and annoy many beach goers.... More

Lots of really cool places to check out down here, especially for young to mid twenties people. But like many people have stated in other reviews.. Beware the Dewey Beach Parking Police. Before my lovely (sarc) encounter with them, I had heard many stories from the locals in and around ocean city ( another beach town nearby) that dewey was... More
