It was educational and fun taking the 'CAPE WATER TAXI' out of Lewes with my grandkids to watch this years baby osprey's get banded. They brought one of the chicks on board and let us get an amazed look at the beautiful baby bird before replacing him in the nest. We carried on a cooler bag with a few beverages... More

We have been coming to Lewes Beach for over 10 years and it has always been neat, fun and the town of Lewes enjoyable. The only negative is the town coffers needing filling to the point of charging handicap parking the same as others, veterans and others should not be charged to park with appropriate handicap designations!

Lewes Beach on the bay is a great beach, especially for younger kids--no big waves to worry about. It's a very wide beach and life guard protected during the season. That said if you love body surfing and the pounding of the waves then you should consider going to Rehoboth Beach. If you don't want to hassle the crowds in... More

We have been spending June in Lewes for 18 years, and we love it here. We started because it's a Bay-front town and our children were small; we wanted a quiet small-town feel, and we wanted a bay beach (no waves). It was perfect! We still come here, and our kids are 18 & 21 and still love it. LEWES... More

The Lewes Beach gives you a different experience, with calmer water and less commercialism. This is a beautiful beach for swimming, lying in the sun or walking along the water. It's close to downtown Lewes so everything you could need is convenient.

This is our beach of choice. Clean and not crazy crowded. The bath house is clean as well. It's safe for the kids and the life guards are vigilant.
