“Great beach experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Very wide, clean uncrowned beach that is hard to improve on.
Visited on last day snack bar was open (Sept 22), yet couple running the stand were very helpful & friendly. Bathhouse was clean, but inside changing room has no privacy. Will definitely return!

“Our favorite beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Fenwick Island State Park is our go to beach. We buy the annual pass so we can go as often as we like for 1 year. The beach in large and clean with a bath house and food for sale. The staff is so nice - we especially love the couple that runs the food stand. They bring in home made baked goods on some days and sell them for a very reasonable price. Yes, you do need to take your trash with you when you leave but that's why the beach is so beautiful. You are also able to rent beach umbrellas if you wish.

“Great beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a great family beach with concessions and hot showers. There is an $8 out of state entrance fee but it is well worth it to enjoy a quieter beach that still offers some amenities. The one negative about the beach is that it is a "carry out" park which means there are no trash cans but plastic trash bags are provided. This is a good concept, unfortunately, there was a lot of trash left in the changing rooms because people chose not to actually take their trash out of the park. Overall, I would definitely recommend this beach and look forward to visiting again.

“Nice quiet beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

My family and I have been coming here for probably the last 11 years, as long as we've owned our beach house in ocean view. It's definitely the best laid-back beach in the area. We come here very often so we buy the out-of-state annual pass which gets you into all DE state parks for $56 i believe. It is $8 per day if you're not from DE but on vacation, that's not a huge price tag.

“Nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Even though you pay a nominal fee for parking ($8 out of state), nice access from US 1, parking and beach area.
