Rehoboth Beach is the beach in the town of Rehoboth so often the name "Rehoboth Beach" can be used as the beach area and the name of the city. Rehoboth beach has a very nice boardwalk with stores for food, games, gifts and many others. It is located off Hwy 1 and it still has the look of cottage and... More

This place is packed from the afternoon on even on weekdays. Morning and early afternoon is a great place to show up and the Boardwalk is awesome-just realize it is a VERY crowded beach. There are less crowds just a bit further south in Dewey.

I had never visited a beach until turning 30. This was the first beach that a beach-going friend took me to. Perfect to go after Labor Day. Retirees and Younger parents with little kids during this time. Breakfast at restaurants are busy but the night life is perfect and the beach is not overly packed. Even late in the season,... More

The main beach is good, but just take a little drive north to the park and the beach will blow your mind away. Great for walking, doffing watching, and suntanning. not as crowded.

You can't go wrong with a trip to the beach... though it can be tricky getting there. Parking is a nightmare on a weekend but manageable on a weekday. I would recommend walking the boardwalk and bringing binoculars to check out the dolphins (though you really don't need them). We had a perfect beach time the last time we were... More

Wonderful beach, especially if you walk beyond either end of the boardwalk where it's less crowded. Easy to rent umbrellas and chairs, lots of lifeguards. Surf can be rough at high tide, but great beach for relaxing or taking long walks. Gorgeous at sunrise or sunset.

Rehoboth is the best beach there is on the Mid-Atlantic shores, more to offer than Lewes or Bethany, yet not the hustle bustle high rise condo feel of Ocean City. We have well over 20 fine dining establishments, a great farmers market, good shopping and an excellent inclusive community

Coming from the southern jersey shore, the sand was more like dirt in my estimation, but it wasn't a dealbreaker. the surf was unappealing, as i like to body surf, but again, not a dealbreaker. no smoking on the beach expect in designated areas (every 500 foot or so at the back of the beach in front of the dune......

We had our first annual family vacation at Rehoboth Beach. We rented a house about three blocks from the beach, and spent much of the time either at the beach or at the boardwalk. The beach is clean, roomy and the water is warmish, and the waves are fun, just watch the little ones carefully. Friendly people on the beach... More
