Lewes Beach is a great place to spend the day. Beautiful area. Safe and clean. Great for the family. Nice beach for long walks or a run.

This is a great place to park and relax and enjoy the Delaware Bay. You can watch the ferry come and go or just enjoy the sun and sand. It has always been a great beach to take the kids because you dont have to worry about the big waves and undertow.

Lewes Beach is a great place to spend the day! My family and I love the ocean, and Lewes Beach is perfect... Plenty of sand for everyone, lifeguards, plenty of FLUSH toilets, Hot Showers, and even a concession stand if you don't feel like packing your lunch! There is a small State Park Fee per car, but totally worth it... More

Why pay to go to the Ocean beach (or wait in the long traffic line). Lewes Beach has nice soft sand, clean water and lots of space to relax on your own.

I know it's only once a year, but these races are so much fun. A fundraiser for charity, various local businesses and groups form rowing teams to race these slim two-paddler-wide boats down the canal in Lewes. The boats have a team of rowers, a steer person in the back and a person drumming the rowing beat on a large... More

We went late in the day on a Saturday afternoon in September and had a great day. It was a bit cold but we still had a wonderful relaxing day. There were only about 100 people on the beach near the Dairy Queen, it was a two block walk from our bed and breakfast. Bathrooms were nearby and the beach... More

Lewes is THE place on the Delaware sea shore, a very cute and historic town, good restaurants and, most importantly, Cape Henlopen Park, a wonderfully natural beach park.

Enjoy that you can pull right up to a meter at the beach, which cuts down on all the walking. There are bathrooms and a Dairy Queen there. It is hard to find a space to park and it does cost.

The beach was so clean and pretty.... soft sand, nice breezes and large enough that we had distance between families.
