We were there in October so it was not crowded. The beach was well maintained and the views of sunrise and sunset absolutely stunning. Very relaxing atmosphere and friendly people. Bathrooms were plentiful and clean.

I did enjoy the boardwalk quite a bit, and the beach is very clean (and non-smoking, though they have smokers posts you can go to if you're into chokin' 'em back). Mostly older couples, a few young families, even in September the beach was very packed, though we showed up around 8am every day, always got a great parking space,... More

Beautiful walk from Dewey to Rehoboth along beach, nice breeze and the beach was very clean all the way. Its not a stroll for the faint of heart ( its and hour and a half) but its a great way to combine some exercise and sightseeing. Great to see the beaches are dog friendly, lots of friendly people and their... More

I spent two different weeks in Rehoboth on vacation and one of the highlights was the beach and board walk. The beach is clean and family friendly and lifeguards during the summer season.

The boardwalk has showers at the beach exits to rinse off sand and heat. This beach is clean, and if you go early you can see the dolphins. We even saw a few whales.

The beach at Rehoboth was sunny, breezy, and very busy. The large crashing waves only enhanced the relaxing experience. This is also a super spot body surfing and "people watching"! We were surprised to find it so crowded for this time of the year!

This was my first time to Rehoboth beach, and relying on previous TripAdvisor reviews, knew that it would be best to leave home early for our three-hour drive. It paid off, as we found excellent parking right on Rehoboth Avenue less than a block from the boardwalk at 9:30. We fed the meter, and then were delighted to see that... More

Cold water, crashing surf, steep beach. We prefer southern beaches. The boardwalk was a nice touch. People watching was fun.

We visited on a day that was only just above 70 degrees. However there was still,plenty going on. The beach was busy and there was music playing on the Boardwalk. Lots of restaurants and very reasonable souvenir T. Shirt type shops. A family area with all kinds of things to do. The surf was good and the beach well patrolled... More

Rehoboth Beach isn't huge. But it has real restaurants and very few chains. If shopping is your thing, the area ~ 3 blocks by 3 blocks has a good variety, ie not a T-Shirt shop every 2 stores like OC features. Small interesting cafe's, and a less rowdy (drinking) crowd appeals to those with families. The downside is with fewer... More
