Beautiful stretch of flat beach w/ ample space for sunbathing and swimming. Lots to do along the boardwalk, A truly classic spot. Just two blocks in has all the charm of Martha's Vineyard, and parking is available (Though it fills up quickly). Funland is a great spot for the kids and grab a cone at one of the many spots...

Probably much nicer years ago, Now a typical American seaside town - lots of pizza, teashirts, a few overpriced pretentious restaurants which cater to the visitors from Washington and Philadelphia. Approach is a soulless highway with Outlet Malls,chain restaurants, supermarkets etc. Area is totally overdeveloped with housing estates eating up every inch of farmland for miles around.

I have been to this place several times. In summer, this place is full of fun. Lots of stores to stroll around and to discover hidden gems. However, finding parking spaces can be painful. Consider carpool. Also if possible, sign up for the electronic parking renewal system. Chances are, in summer, you will have to park far away. This electronic... More

Our first visit to Delaware and we stayed up state, before we headed back to the Midwest our family insisted we take the couple hour drive out of the way and drive down to Rehoboth beach for an afternoon visit before our drive home! We absolutely loved our visit! We will be back for a longer stay! So worth driving... More

Yes it's commercial, it's ocean front property, how could it not be but it's not as relentless as it's neighbor to the south, Ocean City, Md. The narrow sloping beach ( unreconstructed in a natural state rather than sculpted by teams of bulldozers) makes the experience more enjoyable rather than the vast lots o'beach down in Ocean City with similar...

Rehoboth has a terrific beach, even in the winter. I am not a beach person so I prefer the beach during the off-season. It was the first really nice day in a while so there were lots of people on the beach. Children were playing in both the sand and the snow. The beach is beautiful when there is some... More

We vacation with our family annually in Ocean City, MD and Fenwick Island, DE. If all works out we always try to add on a second vacation week for just ourselves in Rehoboth Beach, DE. We just love it here! Beach: The beach at Rehoboth Beach is quite different than at OCMD. While OCMD has very wide beaches, Rehoboth's beach... More

Great beach! We really appreciated that this is a no smoking beach as we have been to some before where it seems like you're walking on as many cigarette butts as grains of sand but this was not like that. Admittedly, we went in winter, but there were no crowds to contend with. The place was simply ideal for a... More
