Rehoboth beach is a great town. So much more to do than other beach towns. But the beach is sooo crowded, and the water is very rough there. We learned how to beat the crowd by going to the beach early. if you are not an early riser, you will not find a spot on the beach. The restaurants and... More

Life guards were some of the best I have ever seen. The beach is so much better since they banned smoking on it. You can now smell the ocean rather than cigar and cigarette smoke all day. Beach is definitely crowded but there is still room to put an umbrellas and feel like you have your own space.

White sand: check. Ocean waves: check. Boardwalk: check. Lots and lots of tourists: check. It's a beautiful beach, but a bit more congested than I prefer. My wife and I have visited more than once, but mostly for the amenities in the area, namely the boardwalk.

We decided to check out the Atlantic Ocean and the closest to DC is Rehoboth Beach. We left last Sunday at 6:15am and arrived at around 8:30am. We were so happy we arrived early, since we were able to find an awesome parking spot really close to the beach. Parking was free until ten and then we paid $3 for... More

We enjoy the beach and take advantage of the umbrellas for rent. The town keeps the beaches very clean and provides plenty of trash cans. My only complaint is the lack of beach etiquette by other beach visitors.

We had great weather. Waves were a little rough the day we went, but I picked a spot near the lifeguard and my 11 year old had a great time. Friendly people. Clean beach. Wash areas off the boardwalk to get the sand off.

The beach was way too crowded. Next time I'll travel somewhere further away from boardwalk. While swimming in ocean people were bumping into us. On the sand- people were right next to each other. Not great for relaxing.

Parking is a nightmare. Drove around for 45 minutes and couldn't find parking. Never got to the beach.
