A family friendly beach that is clean and spacious. This beach is nice for families with children because it is the bay without the big waves and undertoe. I have been coming to this beach for over 50 years and it is by far my favorite along the Delaware coast.

Great little beach. Very little crowds. Ample metered parking. In a bay, therefore very little with regards to waves - so perfect place for small children to gain confidence with swimming in the ocean. No wave to speak of. We arrived before 10am, plenty of parking - left at 1400 and it was starting to get a bit busy. Several... More

It was very crowded and Had to drive around several times to find a parking spot and then we decided that we wanted to drive down further to the beaches with waves versus the bay.

There is almost no risk for kids swimming here because there's really no wave action or rip current to cause alarm. We did Rehoboth first day and they didn't like getting tossed around ( 7 & 4 yrs old) , then Lewes where they could jump, float, splash, dig and spend little energy on escape. Bring balls and goofy inflatable... More

Super quiet, family-friendly, unspoiled, georgous beach...arrived around 8 am and nobody was there...even when we left around 11, it wasn't crowded...such a lovely beach and unspoiled...also there is an amazing ice cream shop right down the road...parking is metered, but it is worth it!!

My family decided to drive to Lewes Beach for a day trip. We arrived midday and were pleasantly surprised to find beach parking! The beach was nice with lifeguards. You can watch the ferry come and go. Nice place to spend the day. Public restrooms & showers available.

Lewes is still an unspoiled, quiet and family friendly beach. Beautiful sunsets and peaceful at sunrise.

Parking is metered, $1.50/ hour until 6pm. We arrived at 5:50 so were able to pay .25 and it was fine. We stayed an hour. The small children with us enjoyed the water. There were hardly any waves. We'll be back again before we leave the area.

The beach is located on an inlet so the water is calm (no waves). Parents can enjoy having their young children play in the water without getting knocked over. However, suggest big kids and adults go elsewhere as playing in the waves is truly fun. Also, the sand is course and more difficult to walk on.
