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.

Nice beach. Clean and quiet. Water tends to be more gentle than other beaches. There is no boardwalk or anywhere in the vicinity to get food, so its best you pack something to eat and drink. Good for a quiet and relaxing day with family or friends.

This is a beach with beach houses along the beach. There is no boardwalk or shopping at Dewey Beach. Dogs are required to have a Dewey Beach dog license all year round. Although I have been there in April and October, I haven't seen a cop checking for Dewey Dog license, yet. There is a lot of beach accesses from... More
