Dewey is the best beach! It's clean, has a lifeguard, and doesn't have a boardwalk to bring in all kinds of commercial activity and trash. There are sections of the beach for skim boarders and before the guards come on dogs -properly licensed, and picked-up after- are welcome. It also faces Rehoboth Bay which is a sheltered bay, not very... More

We wanted to try Woody's so we sent on Sunday evening June 21st. Woody's crab cake was fantastic but that is where any good stopped. We parked next to the liquor store across the street, paid the meter and much to our surprise when we returned we had a ticket for double parking. We were clearly not double parked, plus... More

The beach is publicly accessible and their are life guards at all access points. The beach area is very clean and there are booths to rent umbrellas and other beach needs.

This is a great beach to chill out and snooze. Lovely to walk along by the sea and let your mind drift to when you were a kid having a vacation like this with your mum & dad. A lovely spot to enjoy for all ages.

We had a wonderful day at Dewey Beach. It was very clean and very relaxing. The drive from Philly wasn't very bad either. We left on Friday at about 1PM and were there by 3:30. Lot's to do...Lots of great places to grab food as well! I am not a fan of East Coach Beaches AT ALL...and I really enjoyed... More

sleepy fun beach. a great place for families. The surf is well guarded and the break is a shore break, very safe for little ones and sand castles.

6 short blocks wide Residential from ocean to Bay. A few Restaurants with a few hotels and shops along divided hwy down the middle. Clean wide beach and calm beach goers. R&R. If you you want to let your hair out you can walk, bicycle, or drive, to do lots of things.

Nice clean beach with a lifeguard. It is a very small town but has that authentic beach feel to it. There are drop offs in the water to beware of.
