What a great beach to watch the sun set and the sun rise each day. In the off season come walk you dog on the quiet beach and watch the birds have a great time. In the summer it's a great family beach due to the shallow drop and very small waves. It's life guarded in the summer and has... More

Lewes beach is especially wonderful for those who like the beach but not the waves. Water is calm. You can sit on the beach and watch the Ferry and other ships. Sunset with a cocktail is amazing.

Wonderful family friendly beach. Great for young children because of the calm waters of the bay. Be prepared to pay for parking.

After a day of driving all over Delaware it was nice to drive down the street from our B & B and walk this beach. Very clean with a great view of the bay. Relaxing...

I think this is used by people who don't want to pay to go to Cape Henlopen, or may walk from the hotels in Lewes. Its a bay beach and just can't compare to the great beach a few miles away. But it does have a nice water view, and you can watch the ferries come and go. There are... More

This is a great place to sun and enjoy a blizzard from the Dairy Cream right around the corner. Has a nice bathroom facility that seems to be open all the time and the beach is clean and opens to the Delaware Bay. Public parking leads right up to the beach. Don't forget to pay the meters though :).
