Great place without the under current, great for younger children, state park services, parking fees, Dairy Queen close by, and nice sandy beach where you can watch the ferry come and go to Cape May, NJ! Enjoy!

It's a calm nice place to drop your towel and let the kids play. Very family orientated and Dairy Queen walking distance is a plus. Remember to bring your quarters for parking. Enjoy

Lewes Beach has a mild surf and is perfect for families with children. The paid parking lot fills up quickly so plan to get to the beach early. Restrooms with showers are provided but beware they are old and there is usually a line for the shower. Dairy Queen is a short walk away when you get hungry.

This is the perfect beach for families with young children as it is on the Bay so the water isn't rough. You do have to pay for parking. There is a Dairy Queen a block away so that is very popular! Other choice is to pay to go further down to Cape Henlopen State Park, especially if you want to... More

Good beach at the mouth of Delaware Bay Remenants of a WW2 coast watch tower, as well as miles of beach, much calmer on the bay side the the rough surf on the ocean. The horseshoe crab capital of the world. The weird prehistoric beasts recently have caught the interest of scientists for possible medical applications.

Family oriented clean beach - bay side. I take my granddaughter who is 4 there because there are gentle waves and very long gradual drop off.

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
