The beaches were beautiful and they were very quiet. I also loved that the dogs were allowed on the beach at... More

We've been to Dewey Beach several times, and we love it. The beach is not too crowded (some sections of town are only two blocks deep from bay to ocean), and you can find hotels/motels that keep you close to the beach. And there are several good restaurants to suit different moods -- seems like there are a few more... More

This is a great beach for kids, the waves aren't very big. If your kids are older, or if you enjoy boogie boarding, so somewhere else.

Dog friendly town! Dogs allowed on beach in morning/early evening. Beach is big enough that you aren't crowded. Bon fires allowed with permits. Great week

The beach continues to be one of my favorites. The lifeguards are very conscientious and while folks were annoyed the beach was closed due to a passing and nearby storm, it was the right decision. The lifeguards hold a bonfire on Wednesday nites, and while we did not participate we walked by and there were a lot of families and... More

Loved the dog friendly beach! It is hard to find a dog friendly beach with Dewey is one of them in the morning and evening hours where parking is normally a problem during the day, but in the morning it should not be a problem. Yeah for the puppies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This beach is great for couples, friends, families, dogs or solo. It's clean and well maintained. You can also bring your dog before 9am or after 5pm in the summer months.

it's a nice, clean beach. Seems very family friendly. Lots of restaurants in the area. Beach chairs and umbrellas are for rent at every block. Beach patrol told us to dump our beers and return the cooler to the car. Oops!
